The planning documents stated: "The application seeks planning consent for a change of use from a bookmakers to a hot food takeaway at a commercial unit, within the Bargarran Shopping Centre in Erskine.

"The unit is located within a development of other commercial uses, that include retail, GP surgery, public house and hot food.

"The unit is single storey in height and a flue would be installed to the rear of the premises."
