Controversial plans to site a car wash on the car park of a Sheffield restaurant have been thrown out.
An application had been submitted to Sheffield Council seeking permission to use the car park of Amraj Restaurant – the former George and Dragon pub – on High Street, Beighton, for the business.
However, council planning officers have rejected the proposal following a string of objections.

Although, Nadeem Majida, Amraj owner, had backed the scheme, saying it would improve the state of the car park, neighbours had raised concerns about traffic, the potential for flooding and the visual impact of the car wash.
Announcing the decision, Maria Duffy, council interim head of planning, said the reasons for rejection included that a car wash ‘would have a detrimental impact on the appearance of this prominent site within the Local Shopping Area’ and such a development could compromise the safety of pedestrians.
