RESTAURANT Plan Aims To Breathe New Life Into Empty East End Funeral Parlour

PLANNERS are being asked to let vacant funeral director premises be turned into a restaurant with takeaway.

The change-of-use application has been submitted for a building on Shettleston Road, Glasgow.

The upper floor would be converted into a three-bedroom flat.

A planning statement by Bennett Developments and Consulting explained: “The overall development will see this vacant property recycled to provide not only a new dining experience in the area but also the revitalisation of the upper floor which for so many years has been nothing more than a void.”

No details of what kind of restaurant it would be are given in application documents but opening hours are expected to be 10am to 11pm, Monday to Thursday, and 10am to midnight, Friday and Saturday.

The proposal is pending assessment by city officials.
