Mumbles Road | The Secret Bar & Kitchen

Change of use from storage unit to a take away kiosk

Project Description

As the hospitality industry emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic, it was important to consider how capacity could sustain the growing demand for outdoor provision. The Secret Bar & Kitchen already benefits from an external open area, but the site incorporates some areas of potential.

We met with the owners who had a vision to convert the existing storage unit into a kiosk which would allow customers to continue to take away food and drink safely without the need to enter the main premises.

We undertook a measured survey of the property and worked alongside our approved planning consultants to develop a case for a change of use, incorporating a food and drinks takeaway kiosk.

Along with a thorough Planning Statement, we drew detailed plans, elevations and location drawings for the existing building and proposed kiosk.

Planning was subsequently granted for the development in September 2021.
