PLANNING chiefs have knocked back a proposal for a new hot food takeaway in Springburn.

The planning application for the takeaway was declined by Glasgow City Council for a number of reasons.

Afro-Bite on Demand - believed to offer African cuisine - wanted to take over retail premises at 10A Angus Street. They applied for a change of use and for the premises to be used as a hot food takeaway.

But their proposal was refused because it was not considered to be in accordance with the development plan,

A statement on the refusal notice added ‘the proposed use of the premises as a hot food takeaway on a street which already exceeds the 20% limit on the number of units in use as a hot food shop or public house’ was contrary to the city-wide guidance set out in the development plan.

The applicant has a right to appeal within three months of the refusal notice having been issued.
