GLASGOW West End restaurant Pianola have been given permission for seating outside their premises at 240 Crow Road.
Councillors on the city council’s planning applications committee approved the plan despite a previous request being refused earlier this year.
There were 11 objections — including one from Broomhill Community Council. Those opposed fear problems with car-parking and illegally parked vehicles getting worse; pedestrian flow being restricted; passersby being exposed to cigarette smoke; and noise and anti-social behaviour.
There will be 40 chairs and 10 tables on the public footway, arranged as four four-seat tables along the Crow Road frontage and six four-seat tables along the Clarence Drive frontage.
A report by officials stated that the new proposal had been reduced in scale and had an amended layout compared with the one which was rejected. It continues: “It is considered that the current proposal adequately addresses the reasons for refusal.”
The width of unobstructed footway will be at least two metres.
