Plans revealed for new Sheffield chip shop with ‘takeaway or eat-in dining’ options
Sheffielders in the south west of the city could soon have a new chip shop with the option of takeaway or eat-in dining.
Jack Baker, of the Castle Inn pub, submitted plans to Sheffield Council to turn a fruit and florist shop into a new chippy on 302 Twentywell Lane, Bradway – the same road the pub sits on.
The proposed opening hours are 11am to 11pm, seven days a week.
In a statement with the plans, agents ABA Architecture & Interiors, on behalf of Mr Baker, said: “The application is a simple change of use application with minor alterations, to utilise the existing retail unit as a chip shop with take-away and eat-in facilities.
“The new chip shop will provide a hot food and take-away amenity/ provision, which is currently missing in the locale and found in most local residential retail areas.”
What changes would be made to the building?
If approved by the council, the building will see no change in size but the signage will be replaced and the brickwork will be painted to represent the chip shop branding.
Friers and a counter will also be installed as well as a new accessible toilet.
What do neighbours think?
So far there have been three comments on the application from members of the public, which were all objections.
One objector, who lives on the nearby Kenwell Drive, said: “Twentywell Lane is heavily used and the shopping area in particular is extremely busy with traffic and parking a particular concern.
"The introduction of a food take away outlet along with the new nursing home will only add to the existing problems faced by local residents.”
Another objector on Kenwell Drive said it would ‘significantly affect their quality of life’ after 27 years of investing in their house and garden to improve it.
They said: “Overall, our objections are to protect ours and our neighbours’ quality of life through avoiding: disturbance for 12 hours per day and late into the evening; smells; increased litter and an even more chaotic parking situation.
"We value the success of local businesses and only seek to object where our quality of life could be adversely affected.”
