Thai drops purple plan

THE owners of a Thai restaurant in Whitby have decided not to go ahead with plans to have a purple illuminated sign spanning the width of the building.

Kam Thai had applied for planning permission to put the sign on the front of the restaurant on Church Street but members of the public called it “garish” and Whitby Town Councillors said it was not in keeping with the conservation area.

The application was withdrawn before a final decision was made by Scarborough Borough Council.
