A new restaurant has shelved its plans for live music after City of York Council objected.
In response, the council has withdrawn its objection to plans to create a new branch of the small Jimmy’s chain on Low Petergate.
It is set to open a branch in the former Café Rouge building in Low Petergate.
Originally the council’s public protection team raised concerns about the company’s request for a live music licence – despite Jimmy’s owners insisting it would be a restaurant, not a music venue.
A licensing hearing is due to take place on Monday after neighbours raised worries about noise and drinking at the site.
But Jimmy’s has agreed to remove the live music licence request and says alcohol will only be served until 11pm Sunday to Thursday and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
Matt Boxall, head of public protection at the council, says the authority has withdrawn its objection after negotiations with the applicant.
