A new food outlet could open at Nottingham train station, bringing passengers sub-continental street delicacies. A planning application regarding the grab and go takeaway was submitted to Nottingham City Council.

The proposed restaurant does not require structural modifications, according to the planning documents, and a non-structural stud wall, menu boards, and other necessary equipment will be installed. The outlet would be located inside unit 4 at the station, and owners have received all the necessary approvals from East Midlands Railway.

Mohammad Taimoor Ali Khan, who submitted the planning application for TIM TIM Sub-Continental Street Food, said: "As a dedicated entrepreneur with a passion for providing quality food and service to the community, I believe that our food outlet would not only enhance the amenities available at the station but also contribute positively to the overall experience of travellers and visitors alike. Our vision is to seamlessly integrate a modern yet simple food display within the historical context of the station, ensuring that its traditional charm and architectural significance remain intact.
