A Glasgow bakery in the city's West End has won a council appeal which will allow it to open a 40-seater cafe in the same area.

Cottonrake has been granted permission to open a cafe at 717 Great Western Road.

A government official ruled on their appeal after Glasgow City Council refused permission to change the use of vacant premises.

Glasgow Times:

Planning officials originally rejected proposals over concerns that the business and specifically fumes from cooking would adversely affect the flats above the cafe.

However, that decision was over-turned on the grounds that Cottonrake have a prep kitchen beside SWG3, which will result in limited cooking.

Cottonrake runs a bakery at 497 Great Western Road, near Kelvinbridge.
