PLANNING: New takeaway planned for long term vacant shop in Arnold

The vacant shop is believed to have been last used as a charity shop


Planning documents have been received by Gedling Borough Council planning department relating to the change of use of 30, Eastham Road, Arnold, NG5 6QX from a vacant shop to a hot food takeaway.

The planning statement accompanying a full planning application on behalf of Mr. Muharrem Karadaban states that the shop unit has been vacant for some time with the last use thought to be a charity shop many years ago.

There is residential accommodation over the vacant shop which is in the same ownership and currently occupied.

The retail unit falls within a small parade of 4 units. The other units within the parade are occupied and have Class E use, a Mini Market & News Store, a Hairdressers with residential accommodation above and a single storey Off Licence & General Store at the opposite end.

There are no alterations proposed externally to the existing shop frontage and the internal floorspace will remain unaltered at 60sqm.

A service road to the rear gives access for deliveries and parking / garage facilities serving both the unit and the flat.

Planning application documents suggest that the proposal would bring back into a viable use a vacant retail unit within a small parade of shops and create employment opportunities.

Details of planning application 2023/0171 can be accessed here

  1. Eastham shops – end one was electrical shop and never was a charity shop. The hairdressers has closed. There have been a few incidents with the moni market – the owner was attacked so increasing the footfall might bring more problems.
