Floor plans include a customer waiting area, service counter, cooking and preparation area, general staff store, toilet facilities for staff and a bin store.

According to a planning application submitted to the council, a total of six full-time and six part-time employees are proposed.

Applicants say that waste from the business would initially be stored in kitchen bins internally before being emptied into larger commercial bins within a rear bin store area.

Proposed opening hours cover 8am-11pm daily.

A decision on the application is expected by mid November following a period of consultation up until October 11.
