Big plans to turn 'tired' Mansfield takeaway into plush new restaurant and bar
Plans have been approved to turn a popular Mansfield takeaway into a Chinese restaurant and bar.
Mansfield District Council has given the green light for the Golden Bridge Chinese takeaway to be extended to create a downstairs restaurant and bar, with a separate seating area and outside terrace upstairs.
Developers say the plans “will uplift the tired” style of the existing Nottingham Road building, which has operated as a takeaway since 2003 and was formerly a post office.
A social media post from Jackson Design Associates states: “JDA have recently gained planning approval for the extension and refurbishment of the ‘Golden Bridge Chinese Restaurant’, located within a prominent area of Mansfield.
“The proposals feature a modern restaurant and bar to the existing ground floor, with the creation of a new first floor restaurant and external terrace.
“Elevationally, a new contemporary design with an aluminium standing seam curved roof will provide interest in the street scene and uplift the existing, tired, residential style front elevation.
“We look forward to seeing the project progress in the coming months.”
The application, which was approved with conditions by council planners, includes a first floor front extension, a two floor rear extension, and change of use of a first floor flat to a mixed-use restaurant and takeaway.
Conditions include work on the development beginning within three years, and construction work taking place between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 1pm on Saturdays, and no work on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Once completed, it is also a condition that there is no amplified exterior sound, to avoid noise nuisance to neighbours, without separate approval being granted by the authority.
