Has “Monton Carlo” reached peak bar?




Looks like boozy Monton might have finally reached peak bar, with plans for this impressive looking place on the site of the former motorcycle store not running smoothly.

Plans for 159 Monton Road were knocked back by Salford planners late last year – they said that there are already enough places to drink in the area.

The plans would also have a detrimental impact on neighbouring homes, planners suggested.

The plans lodged relate to the former motorcycle store and neighbouring buildings. An artist’s impression of the proposed development show a two storey bar and restaurant.

The decision to refuse planning consent is being appealed. A number of objections have been lodged.

The planning application can be seen at http://publicaccess.salford.gov.uk/publicaccess/ by searching for 16/69285/FUL.
