A JAPANESE restaurant refused planning permission has appealed the decision.

Wagamama wanted to move into a building in South Street currently occupied by Store Twenty One.

But councillors at Chichester District Council voted to refuse the plans on the basis it would mean more than 15m of non-retail frontage in the city centre.

A petition was launched to bring the noodle bar to Chichester, which now has more than 700 signatures.

The plans are now being considered by the government’s Planning Inspectorate and comments should be sent by March 15.
