Regarding the potential noise impact of the new restaurant, the council planning officer states: “There are existing permanent residential dwellings located above the unit, so there is a possibility that the project will have an impact. negative on residential approval. However, the site is in a bustling neighborhood center and as such a higher level of noise pollution and activity is an intrinsic and inevitable part of life in the area.
