Two empty shops could be in line for a new lease of life as a takeaway.
The owner of 177 and 177a King Street has applied for a change of use aimed at getting the units filled.
The two shops formerly Thorntons chocolate shop and Phones4u have been empty for at least three years.
Under the plans an internal wall will be taken down to create a single space.
The application has been made by The Rand Group, based in London.

The applicant's agent said the change-of-use to A5 (takeaway) was being put forward in an effort to attract an operator.
Meanwhile a separate application seeks prior approval to convert offices on the second and third floors into three self contained flats.
