All regeneration of the Clifftown conservation area should be in keeping with the surrounding residential areas in Clifftown. The whole area should come under planning consent within the Clifftown Article 4 planning policy.
There should not be a concentration of Bars and restaurants in the area and if these are brought to the area then no such planning should be given to Wetherspoons or budget chain pubs which cause drinking issues and encourage daytime drinking lowering the tone of the area and degrading surrounding properties. Concentrating bars in one area has proven to be bad for the area and its surroundings. union street in plymouth proves this. sports pubs and night clubs should not be allowed in the clifftown conservation area. only quality high end pubs, restaurants and cafes should be allowed to reflect the residential area of clifftown, thus drawing in financially solvent residents who will naturally have the capital to improve the area themselves and in turn create employment.
