A planning application has been submitted to turn a former Lancaster Road pharmacy into a restaurant and takeaway.


The application has been submitted by the same owners as Wing & Beer co in Cannon Street.

Plans include changing the use of the two storey/three storey building from a former pharmacist with office space above to become a Takeaway and Restaurant at ground and first floor level.

There would be minor painting around windows as well as repair works.

The proposal seeks to reconfigure the interior of the first and ground floors as well as moving the WC facilities so there would be an accessible WC.

Materials which required low to no-maintenance would be used which also matched the existing material palette.

It is thought that the new restaurant/takeaway would offer street-food style food.

The building is adjacent to the Grade II listed The Stanley Arms and the Grade I listed Harris Museum and Library and the proposals will not negatively impact those buildings and may bring more people to those surrounding buildings.

The agent for the application is Studio John Bridge Ltd.
