Bowker BMW on Customs House Way on the Docks wants to increase the size of its showroom.
Currently offices at the showroom in Riversway are to be converted to show off top of the range motorcycles.
A statement from Cassidy and Ashton, acting on behalf of Bowker, states: “The flat roofed single storey extension would sweep round the edge of the two storey building projecting out to form a canopy over the showroom areas, including large expanses of glazing to maximise views into the showroom.”
Additional parking spaces are being provided taking the total parking from 14 to 28.
The extension would take the floorspace at Bowker BMW to 1,190 square metres.
The main showroom was refurbished in the summer last year costing more than £1 million.
No objections have been raised to the plans and councillors have been recommended to approve the plans at the next planning committee on Monday 12 January.
