MEMBERS of Royston Town Council's planning committee are still to oppose proposals for a new restaurant.
They decided to object to the scheme when a planning inspector holds a hearing into the scheme next month.
The inspector will decide whether to approve plans for an empty shop in Angel Pavement, Royston, to be converted into a restaurant.
Planning committee chairman Cllr Rod Kennedy said on Monday evening that members could not support the proposal. "In our view it is a too valuable site to lose as retail premises," he said.
North Herts District Council has objected to the scheme, too.
In a planning brief Lambert Smith Hampton, the company marketing the property, said 40 per cent of the inquiries it had received came from parties interested in converting it into a restaurant.
