A NOODLE restaurant chain wants permission to open its first Glasgow outlet in an empty city centre shop.
A change-of-use application has been made for former florist premises at 80 West Nile Street.
If approved by city planners, the shop would be turned into a Dr Noodles eatery.
The company has six restaurants in Dundee, Perth, Aberdeen, Stirling and St Andrews.
The Glasgow venue would be open 10am to 10pm, seven days a week.
A document submitted by planning consultants Iceni as part of the application states: “The proposal will have a positive impact on the vitality and viability of this part of the City Centre.
“The proposed cooking and ventilation methods would not result in any adverse impact to amenity.”
It continues: “This part of West Nile Street is primarily commercial in nature, with a number of Class 3 [food and drink], pub and other non-retail uses. The loss of this retail unit would not diminish the retail functions of the street or wider City Centre.”
The application is pending assessment by officials.
