A new burger bar is set to be opened in Richmond by a local business launched during the pandemic.
BurgerQ Street Kitchen has been given planning permission for the restaurant and takeaway in King Street.
The premises were previously occupied by an estate agents and a local newspaper.
The company launched in 2020 offering a collection and delivery service in Catterick Garrison and Richmond.
The owners say they were prompted to launch the business after being unable to get a decent burger locally.
A report by planning officers giving approval states: “The proposed change of use from an estate agents to a restaurant and takeaway use will support the local economy and positively contribute towards the vitality and viability of
Richmond town centre.
“Subject to precise details of the ducting being provided and approved, the proposal will conserve and enhance the overall character and appearance of Richmond Conservation Area.
“The proposal will not be harmful to amenity or highway safety or contribute towards crime and anti-social behaviour.”
Richmondshire District Council has approved the change of use from estate agents to restaurant and takeaway.
The signage for the front of the building is yet to be approved after concerns were raised by both the town council and civic society that it was not in keeping with the town.
This is the company’s current menu:
