ANOTHER application has been made to create a remote hot food takeaway facility with kitchen pods in central Glasgow.
The proposal is to turn warehouse space in Kingston Street, Tradeston in to a commercial kitchen with six pods for use by different companies.
The change-of-use application has been made FA Property Company Ltd. Deliveroo are awaiting a verdict on an application made in May to create a hub with nine kitchen pods at a building on Scotland Street near West Street.
A supporting document regarding the new proposal states: “This is in line with current trends in the hot food takeaway sector where street premises are becoming less important, particularly over the last 18 months where the covid pandemic has created a fundamental shift in how these services are procured.
“It is the intention that six different kitchens would be in operation and all orders would be taken by mobile app, website or telephone. No public counter would be available, with delivery drivers being the only traffic moving to and from the site.”
It continues: “The applicant is keen to utilise this existing building on a brownfield site rather than new-build premises on the outskirts of the city, improving cover and delivery times, specifically for the city centre.
“This will also allow the use of cycle deliveries rather than cars, both for practical and economic purposes.”
The facility would be open from noon until 2am, seven days a week.
The application is pending assessment by city planners.
