A plan to convert a retail unit in Nelson to a shop and hot food takeaway with two three bedroom flats above has been refused by Pendle Council’s Nelson Committee.

Councillors decided to turn down the plans at 115 Manchester Road which had a recommendation for refusal.

The application attracted six objections from nearby residents and Nelson Town Council members felt that there were already a sufficient number of fast food outlets in the town.

Committee members refused it on grounds that it was an inappropriate form of development in the Whitefield conservation area, it would impact on the amenity of residents by loss of privacy, the noise and fumes from the takeaway would impact residents of associated flats and it would affect the flow of traffic in Manchester Road.
