The owner of a kebab shop in Notting Hill who failed to carry out work to reduce the noise coming from his business has been fined.
Hayatullah Rahmatullah, from the Royal Grill, in Notting Hill Gate, was issued with a Breach of Condition Notice by the royal borough after he failed to carry out the noise mitigation required by planning permission granted in October 2015 for a new kitchen extractor, air conditioning and condenser units.
Appearing at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (August 9), he admitted to failing to abide by a planning permission.
The court was told Rahmatullah was warned three times by the planning department at Kensington and Chelsea Council of the need to ensure that noise mitigation measures were installed.
The conditions required alterations to the units to be undertaken within two months, including the fitting of a timer and acoustic box to ensure that near neighbours were not disturbed by noise.
But despite this, the necessary have yet to be undertaken.
The planning permission had been granted to a previous owner of the restaurant, but Rahmatullah inherited the need to comply with the conditions when he took over the business. Some work to the other plant had been undertaken.
He was fined £300 and told to pay costs of the same amount. He must also pay a victim surcharge of £30.
