A city centre chippy is planning to create a ‘basement bar’ as part of renovation plans to improve the restaurant. Proposals put forward for the Lace Market Fish Bar, in Stoney Street, include a new seating area underneath the chippy.

A space that the owner says is currently a redundant storage area in the fish bar’s basement could be turned into a bar facility, with stairs leading from the front of the shop to a lower floor. In this basement there would be a bar with a service and preparation area, seating for customers, as well as toilets.

This is a part of a wider renovations, set out in three separate planning applications, for the chip shop. An application is also being made to replace the existing shopfront with a new “more aesthetically pleasing shopfront”, as well as for consent to display a new illuminated sign for the fish bar.

The property is Grade II listed and stands within the Lace Market Conservation Area. It is on a pedestrianised part of Stoney Street, in an area with various other bars, restaurants, and takeaways.

The property was built around 1896, originally used as a warehouse, and has been in use as a fish bar since at least 1998. The owner of the Lace Market Fish Bar previously told Nottinghamshire Live that it was not planned at the moment for the downstairs bar to serve alcohol.

In a planning document, CDRB Architects, on behalf of applicant Bas Alia, said: “To summarise the design statement, we feel the proposal, in the manner proposed by the details submitted, secure the following strategic planning objectives: Do not have any negative effect on the existing site or its locality, and indeed will positively contribute to the identity and character of the area.

“Design would not interfere with the overall architectural narrative of its surroundings. Development will help the existing business remain viable and bring more of the building into productive use.” The application is currently pending consideration by Nottingham City Council.
