7-8 Bennet Street

The importance of finding a better use for premises such as 7-8 Bennet Street was one of the main conclusions of the Trust’s. St James’s A3- Food and Drink Study 2004; which showed that historic St James’s is under unrelenting threat from the growth of A3/A4 uses (licensed restaurants and bars), westwards from the West End Stress Area. The Trust is committed to preventing the excessive spread and growth of restaurants and bars in St James’s and is working hard to control their impact on the character of the area. After repeated applications to use the premises as a restaurant, successfully opposed by the Trust, this important site now houses an art gallery.
