Proposals to turn a former Lincoln pub into a Pizza Hut takeaway have been submitted to City of Lincoln Council.
Applicants Globe Consultants plan to transform the site of the Burton Arms pub on 68 West Parade into a Pizza Hut Delivery franchise.
The pub, located on the corner of Victoria Street, has recently closed down.
Minimal work would be carried out to the exterior of the two-storey building, which will require a change in licence from public house to hot food takeaway.
Under the plans, some timber detailing would be removed from beneath the existing windows and these sections would be painted grey along with the existing timber windows and door frames.
Some residents have been quick to raise their concerns about the change of use, submitting objections on the grounds of an increase in noise and disturbances in a predominantly residential area, as well as a rise in the amount of litter, traffic and parking problems.
The city council has recommended that the application be approved subject to conditions. The conditions are that the developers must submit noise assessment and fume extractions details.
Opening and delivery hours would be restricted. Last entry times have been recommended as 11pm and deliveries would be restricted to midnight Mondays to Saturdays and 11pm on Sundays and bank holidays.
In addition, waste collection would be restricted to between 7am – 7pm Monday to Saturday.
The application will be discussed at a planning meeting on April 1.
