A HISTORIC former station master’s house next to Welwyn North Station will not be turned into an Indian takeaway and restaurant following a ruling last week.

Officials at Welwyn Hatfield Council rejected the bid by Pasha Kasim to turn the vacant building into an eaterie, named the Zara Indian Cuisine.

The Harmer Green Lane building is thought to date back to 1850, when the station was first built, but has suffered from lack of maintenance.

Under the plans, the ground floor of the building would have been used for the restaurant, while the first floor was to have been used for staff accommodation.

Welwyn Parish Council had opposed the plans, which also included a single storey extension.
