VACANT bank premises in Dennistoun can be used as a restaurant, city councillors have agreed.
Glasgow’s planning local review committee overturned a decision by planners who refused permission for the proposal last year.
The application involves the ground floor and basement at 424 Duke Street, which was a branch of the TSB, but has been disused for some time.
Officials were opposed, saying that changing the use would breach a policy on how many food and entertainment venues there can be on each street block.
The applicant appealed saying that policy didn’t apply because there was to be no hot food takeaway. Councillors agreed and today granted permission
No details were given in planning documents about whether an operator for the restaurant has been lined up.
