A new restaurant and hot food takeaway could soon be opened in Sutton if Ashfield District Council gives it the go-ahead.

The council has received a planning application for the restaurant and takeaway at The Broad Centre retail park.

The proposal is to divide the unit currently occupied by Poundland on a short-term basis, into two shops, creating the eatery in one of them.

It would be open from 5 am to 3 am the next day on Thursdays to Saturdays, and from 5 am to 12 midnight on Sundays to Wednesdays. It would also operate a courier home-delivery service seven days a week from 6 am to 12 midnight.

The application has been submitted by the London-based consultancy, Burnett Planning, acting as agents on behalf of the BBC Pension Trust Ltd, who are the owners of The Broad Centre.

It is not yet known which brand name would run the restaurant and takeaway. In a covering letter, Colin Burnett, of Burnett Planning, says if the scheme is granted permission by the council, the unit will then be “marketed to a wide range of restaurant operators”.

Mr Burnett says the venue would operate with “a broadly even mix of eat-in and takeaway”. He adds: “The proposal would facilitate the continued active use of an existing building, which would positively contribute to the vitality and viability of Sutton town centre.

"It would provide a place for people to meet and interact, and also provide local job opportunities to support economic growth.”
