PLANS to build a new cafe in the car park area of a KFC have been approved by Bradford Council.

The application was for a new unit, which could be used as a shop or cafe, to be built on parking spaces at the chicken take away at the junction of Ingleby Road and Thornton Road.

Submitted by a Mr McCaffrey, ,the plans called for a 112 square metre unit to be built on four parking spaces at the far end of the KFC’s car park.

Both businesses would then be services by the same car park.

The scheme has now been approved by planning officers, who said: “The addition of a new unit will expand the services and choice on offer within the district centre thus contributing to its vitality and viability, albeit only modestly.

“The new unit is within an allocated district centre and as such is surrounded by comparable uses and a sufficient distance away from residential accommodation to prevent any harm to the occupant’s amenity.”

Officers said customers would likely be making ‘linked trips’ while visiting other businesses.
