Vanguardia win Faces appeal

May 2015

A decision has just been announced (11th May 2015) following an Appeal Inquiry that began on the 20th January 2015 relating to Faces nightclub and a hotel at 452 – 454 Cranbrook Road, Ilford.

The inquiry was in connection with an appeal against an enforcement notice alleging the change of use of a hostel to a hotel which also considered the established use of Faces Nightclub located below the hotel.

In giving expert evidence Vanguardia’s Director Jim Griffiths successfully demonstrated that the mitigation scheme proposed by the Appellant was inadequate.

The appellant lost the technical argument relating to how noise from the nightclub affects the appeal building and the appeal was dismissed.
