A new takeaway could open up in the building of a former florist.
An application has been lodged with Preston Council to convert a retail shop into a hot food takeaway on Floyd Road in Ribbleton.
The applicant also wants to install an extraction flue to the side of the building.
A design and access statement said the site was currently redundant and had been empty for about two years, with the last known use being a florist.
It said the applicant plans to refurbish the premises and “provide a valuable facility for the local community”.
It said: “The surrounding area is predominantly residential with some existing commercial use in which a large majority are families who would benefit highly from the facility proposed.”
A decision on the full application for change of use is due to be made under delegated powers.
