A former computer shop on the corner of Plungington Road and Trafford Street is set to become a new takeaway.


Plans from Dr K Reddy shows how the mct computers store would be converted.

A planning statement from Homesplan4u states: “There is substantial residential catchment area around the site and it is anticipated that the majority of customers live and work locally and within walking distances of the site.

“It is considered that the location is acceptable for the proposed use and highly desirable to the local residents.

“Thus, it is considered that the lvel of activity resulting from the proposed change from retail to hot food takeaway will not adversely impact on the character of the area or be harmful to the living conditions of nearby neighbours.

“It is considered that the investment in the premises and the resulting aesthetic gains together contribute an important service to the local residents in that area.”

The takeaway would open from 4pm to 11pm Monday to Saturday and from 4pm to 10pm on Sundays. It is not known what cuisine the takeaway would serve.

Four jobs are due to be created if the takeaway conversion is granted planning permission.

The full plans are available to view on the Preston City Council website.
