Top Tips - Restaurants

Planning advice to make your restaurant a success.

How do you want the restaurant to operate?

Before we start the process we look at what you want to achieve in terms of numbers of covers, hours of opening and even what cuisine you are intending to serve. All these factors will help us to advise to what is the best strategy towards achieving this goal.

Location

Most local authorities accept that restaurants provide for a valuable part of a shopping experience. However, there may be restrictions on the saturation of numbers or even other competitors planning to open in the same area. We can work with clients to give an opinion on the chances of success in any given area to save wasted time and money.

Other planning requirements and licences

Alongside the planning Use Class of the premises there may be additional requirements that need consideration before you open. Amongst these could be the need for an extraction system for if you are serving food, a new shop front or advertising, or if you intend to serve alcohol then a liquor licence will be needed.
