In 2011 Bradford Council approved plans for a replacement timber shop front on 6 Rawson Place, which dates back to the 1870s.
But a shopfront of glass and aluminium was built instead.Couldn't the applicant read English? Couldn't his architects?
In the past few years, three planning applications were submitted by Jamil Ashraf to retain the shopfront, but Bradford Council refused the application each time.What's not clear about 'We told you to build it this way, you ignored that ruling, now fix it'..?
Now Mr Ashraf has submitted an appeal to the government calling for Bradford Council’s most recent decision to be overturned.
A decision will be made by a government appointed planning inspector in the coming months.How much is all this costing the taxpayer?
