The Popeyes in Cambridge has lost a fight to keep its signs put up without permission.

The American chicken chain opened a restaurant on Cambridge Market Square in February 2023.

The city council gave permission for a "Popeyes" sign to be put up above the main exterior windows, however, the restaurant installed the "Popeyes" sign above the door, and a further slogan sign above the windows.

Popeyes has been ordered to remove the signs, after the planning inspector seemed them "too large" and harmful to the "character and appearance" of the Market Hill listed buildings the restaurant sits within.
