The Ivy requests planning permission to open new restaurant in Chichester

The Ivy has requested permission to open a new restaurant in Chichester.

The chain, known for its 'upmarket brasseries and neighbourhood cafés', wants to open a restaurant at 89-91 East Street — a site previously occupied by Topman/Topshop.

There are more than 30 Ivy branches in the UK, including 13 in London. Currently, the nearest Ivy restaurants to Chichester are Brighton and Winchester.

Troia (UK) Restaurants Limited has applied to Chichester District Council for the grant of a premises license.
