A proposal has been submitted to planning chiefs to convert an empty One Stop store into a takeaway.

The plans are for a shop on Bowness Avenue in Moss Bank.

They are a re-submission of plans which were signed off in 2014 but have subsequently lapsed.

The application says: “Johnson Fellows were instructed to submit a change of use application for 31 Bowness Avenue.

“This is due to the existing retail unit being vacant for a considerable amount of time and the landlord wishing to attract potential clients.

“One Stop Stores have been approached by an interested party who wish to occupy the space under a different use class”.

Public consultation on plans lasts until Boxing Day.
