It is not stated what type of shop will occupy the retail unit.

The site is a corner plot residing next to a row of terraced houses with 83 Elliman Avenue.

A statement from applicant Waqar Khan read: “The proposal will provide a positive impact as currently, it’s an empty and vacant plot of land.

“It will fill in the gap between 83 and 85 Elliman Avenue in terms of its scale and cohere with the design style of the street scene.
