Plans have been launched to open a new restaurant in Bolton.

The proposals have been lodged for the presently unused site on Blackburn Road, near Warburton Street, which used to be a plumbing retailer.

The plans have been sent to the council by applicant Salim Patel.

A list of neighbours to be consulted has also been sent which includes residents and employees of 19 nearby spots.

Residents on Blackburn Road, Loxley Chase and Maplewood Gardens will be asked about the plans.

If approved the restaurant would be open between 11am and 11pm each day except for Saturday when it would close at midnight.

Recently, the Beefalo, a restaurant located on the same street, announced it would be reopening after being devastated by a fire.
