AN application for a hot food takeaway outlet with seating at a former bookmakers in Greenock has been withdrawn.
A change-of-use bid had been made for premises at 172 Dunlop Street, Barr’s Cottage.
But Inverclyde’s planning website now indicates that the proposal has been withdrawn by the applicant meaning officials will not be issuing a decision on the proposal.
No reason is given and it’s not clear if a revised proposal will be submitted. Eleven public objections had been made against the plan.
A supporting statement included with the proposal had stated: “The applicant and his colleagues run takeaways in Glasgow and also run the nearby car wash in Greenock giving them a very good knowledge of the district and its trading potential.”
The document stated that 13 indoor seats would be provided to “enable customers to consume their food sheltered during inclement weather”.
No details had been given regarding the kind of food that would be sold.
