Decision over two takeaways
COUNCILLORS are expected to approve plans for two new takeaways in the same street at a meeting today.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council's development management committee was due to discuss two sets of plans to change both a former butcher's shop and a former furniture shop into takeaways in King Street, Fenton.
A petition signed by 238 people has been sent to the council opposing the proposal for 83-85 King Street.
Objectors say there are already enough takeaways in the area and any more could lead to anti-social behaviour.

But officers at the council have recommended that planning permission is given to both takeaways.
They say the use of both properties, which are currently empty, as takeaways would be acceptable.
But highways officers have recommended the businesses are banned from operating a home delivery service.
