Restaurant plans for closed pet shop
A former town centre pet shop could be turned into a takeaway and restaurant if plans are given the green light.
An application has been re-submitted to planning chiefs at South Tyneside Council for permission to carry out the conversion on the property in Ocean Road.
If given the go-ahead, the shop would be turned into a hot food takeaway with a licensed restaurant and snack bar or cafe on the first floor.
The front of the building will be replaced with a double glazed entrance, which would also accommodate wheelchair access to the ground floor.
