A NEW "chicken speciality shop" could open its doors in Bradford if plans are approved.

An application has been submitted to Bradford Council to turn an old newsagents on Allerton Road,Allerton, into the takeaway.

Documents submitted with the application say: "The existing premises were used a a newsagents shop but closed earlier this year.

"No interest has been shown for re-letting the shop other than as an A5 hot food takeaway of which there are four/five within the district.

"The proposal is to be a speciality shop selling chicken and chicken products."

It says there are no plans to alter the external elevations and there will be an internal flue.
