A new takeaway could be on the cards for a former village sandwich shop. Mr Ali Kulhas has submitted plans to Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council for a "hot food takeaway" at 4 Arnold's Crescent in Newbold Verdon.

The building was previously home to Clare’s Bread and Butter, a sandwich shop, but documents submitted with the application say the shop has gone out of business, and the building has been empty for more than six months. Proposed signage included in the application shows the takeaway would sell pizzas, kebabs and burgers, if approved.

The application said a new extraction system will be needed for the takeaway’s cooking equipment as the current one is said to be "not fit for purpose". Mr Kulhas added the new system "aims to follow the existing one in shape and location to reduce its visual impact".

Planning application documents read: “A loss making shop is going. It is lost. Now we have the chance to bring it back to [life] and create a few jobs in the process, which will add to the vitality and liveliness of the area.

"An active front is on the offer here. It is beyond logic and reason that the council will have a closed shutter with the sign TO LET in its place.”

The application documents can be viewed on the council’s online planning portal, and comments and objections can be made until Wednesday, June 19.
