Woking Borough Council

Hot Food Takeaway SPD

The Supplementary Planning Document for Hot Food Takeaways was adopted by the Council on 23 October 2014, and is a material consideration in the determination of planning applications. It provides detailed guidance to ensure that future Hot Food Takeaway development is of the highest design standards, does not create significant harm to neighbouring properties and does not lead to an over proliferation of Hot Food Takeaway outlets in the borough's retail centres and parades.
