COUNCILLORS Urged To Give Go-Ahead For Port Glasgow Restaurant

A NEW Indian takeaway and restaurant opposed by hundreds of people is being recommended for approval.

Planning officials are backing the proposal which involves the former Aulds the Bakers shop at Princes Street in Port Glasgow town centre.

Councillors on Inverclyde Planning Board are due to decided if the application should be approved next week.

The eatery would have 34 seats and be open from 2pm to 11pm, Monday to Saturday and 4pm to 11pm on Sundays.

A petition with 302 signatures has been submitted to Inverclyde Council raising concerns including over-provision, traffic and cooking smells.

A report by planners states: "The application site is one of a number of currently vacant retail units within the town centre and, visually, is in poor condition.

"The proposal to bring it back into use will eliminate a dead frontage and have a positive impact on the appearance of the street, to the benefit of the amenity of the area.

"Bringing the vacant unit back into use will also be of positive benefit to the vitality of the town centre by bringing customers into the area and increasing pedestrian activity. Whilst in the area, customers of the premises may also choose to use shops and services, benefiting existing shops and businesses."

The report also states: "The existing range of uses [in Princes Street] causes an established level of noise and activity both during the day and into the evening."
