A former Sunderland fish and chip shop could reopen as a restaurant.
Plans have been submitted to Sunderland City Council to transform the former Stannington Fisheries in Hill View into a grill, with improved disabled access.
A sign hung outside the store says it is due to be taken over by Grill N Chill, a Seaham-based takeaway.
If approved, the scheme could see the building, in Stannington Grove, renovated, with a new kitchen and toilets and a seating area for customers at the front of the business.
This would also include ramped access and disabled toilet.
The application says: “The proposed remodelling of the building will allow for a better operational layout and will provide facilities that were not previously available for disabled customers.”
A decision on the application is expected by mid-September.
