A planning application has been submitted for a change of use of the former KFC premises in the High Street. When KFC was the occupier, the approved use was ‘restaurant and takeaway’.
The proposed use is ‘takeaway and restaurant’. It seems to be a bit of a case of ‘spot the difference’, but presumably the applicant wants to put more emphasis on a takeaway business, and less on being a restaurant. We’ve nothing against takeaways – we’ve been known to use them ourselves. But it would be comforting to see a more up-market retailer moving into the road.
