Plans for a Indian cafe and takeaway at a former Greggs bakery in the West End have been given the go-ahead.
An application to turn 187 Perth Road into a hot food takeaway has been approved by councillors subject to conditions.
Floorplans submitted to Dundee City Council by Peter Inglis Architects on behalf of applicant Mohammed Latif show seating for around 20 people, with food prepared behind a deli-style counter at the front of the shop.
Mr Latif confirmed the eatery will serve Indian food but added: “I don’t want to say too much right now until we have the details finalised 100%.
“But I think once we do we’ll have something the public really love.”
The building has been vacant since the bakery giant moved out of the premises in 2016, at a time when fears were raised about the rate of shop closures on Perth Road.
But the district has seen something of a revival as a foodie destination, with ice cream parlour Crolla’s Gelateria set to move into the former Lloyds Bank and an application to turn the former RBS branch into a new coffee shop submitted by estate agents Jamal Property World.
Peter Menzies, chairman of West End Community Council, said: “We welcome the opportunity for a new business and it’s great that this has been approved for the West End.
“We’re growing towards becoming a massive food and drink hub.
“The West End has become the place to go for a night out in the city and it’s something that should be celebrated.”
Architect Mr Inglis explained that despite being a former bakery, the change of use application was necessary as Greggs operated as a retailer.
The plans were approved subject to the applicants submitting full details of ventilation systems and agreeing not to exceed specified noise levels.
