A DOUBLE decker bus cafe and takeaway looks set to be established in Lancashire by a Bolton businessman.

Plans have been drawn up to install a converted ‘burger bus’ on spare land at Whalley Range business park in Blackburn.

Bolton-based trader Sarfraz Patel is envisaging that the food preparation area will be on the lower deck.

And customers would be served meals on the top deck, where nine tables would be fitted.

Seven new jobs would be created if the proposals find favour with Blackburn with Darwen planners, Mr Patel has pledged.

Closing times for the venture would be 10pm on Mondays to Fridays and 11pm on Saturdays, according to plans lodged with the borough’s development control department.

Site owner Vali Investments have also confirmed that they have endorsed a car parking agreement with Mr Patel for the land, which also houses an Asia Continental store, the Shin-Gi-Rug Thai boxing centre and a hand car wash operation among others.

If approved, the burger bus cafe would be the newest eaterie along Blackburn’s Curry Mile since Chinese fusion outlet Oodles opened its doors in October.
