A chain takeaway is set to open in Rustington after councillors granted permission for a shop conversion.

The applicant for the change of use plans for the former Lily’s Larder shop, in Broadmark Parade, was not revealed at the development control committee meeting last Wednesday.

But documents submitted as part of the application hinted it would be a pizza takeaway.

Pizza Hut confirmed the shop was not on its radar when contacted by the Herald. Domino’s and Papa John’s are yet to comment.

Despite objections from Rustington Parish Council on grounds of vehicles stopping on the highway outside the store and potential nuisance to residential occupiers above the property, the committee granted permission.

It limited hours of operation to 10am to 11pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm to 10pm on Sundays and bank holidays.

The permission also allows a single storey rear extension, installation of a ventilation system and provision of two parking spaces at the rear.
