Too many takeaways says Spalding civic society

Will planners give consent for a takeaway here?

A new food takeaway could open in the former Welec shop on the corner of Spalding’s New Road and Red Lion Street.

But Spalding and District Civic Society objects to a planning application submitted to the council because it believes there are too many places to eat in that area.

The society says: “We feel that the area is already saturated with takeaways and other late-night eating opportunities.”

The planning application for a change of use was made on behalf of The Trustees of the Frances Blane Settlement via the Pegasus Planning Group.

Pegasus told the council the application was made “simply to establish whether the proposed change of use” was acceptable and any alterations to the shop front or signs would be the subject of separate planning applications where necessary.

• According to the council’s Food Hygiene Ratings web page, a new restaurant or cafe or canteen is planned for 25 Station Street.
