Planning permission has been submitted to change the use of the old Blockbuster store to a Roosters Piri Piri restaurant and takeaway.
The proposal states: “Change of Use from Class A1 (retail) to Class A3 (Restaurant) with ancillary Class A5 (takeaway); alterations to shop (repositioning of entrance door, and installation of two sliding doors) and installation of flue.”
If it goes through, the proposal would see it opening from 10:00am to 11:00pm Monday to Saturday and from 11:00am to 9:30pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays. It would also be a jobs boost with plans to employ 10 full time and 15 part time staff.
Roosters Piri Piri is a chain of casual dining, quick-service and takeaway restaurants. They are currently in London and around the South East of England, although they are expanding throughout the United Kingdom.
They specialise in spicy grilled Piri Piri chicken, but also serve gourmet burgers, grilled specialities and vegetarian meals. For an example of their menu click here.
