Appeal: Open windows in 'stress area' would harm living conditions


A West London restaurant's plan to install opening windows has been blocked after an inspector ruled noise disruption was already too high in the area

The restaurant, in a busy area of London's West End, is situated on the ground floor of a building below three residential flats. The proposal sought permission to modify the restaurant's frontage to change its windows from fixed to opening. The plans were initially refused by the City of Westminster Council because of the added noise disruption the open windows would cause.
