TWO new food outlets could soon be opening in Backwell despite objections being raised.
Proposals submitted to change the use of a former equestrian shop in Rodney Road into a takeaway have been given the go-ahead, with a new pizza outlet set to open in the new future.
A planning application to change the use of the former HSBC bank, also in Rodney Road, into a restaurant has also been given approval by North Somerset Council. This is despite strong objections being raised against both proposals in fear of the village centre losing its shopping appeal.
Backwell Parish Council objected to both applications but to no avail.
Its chairman, Bob Taylor, said: “Out of 10 outlets in Rodney Road, this will take the number of them serving food to six.
“It is better than having an empty shop but is disappointing to see this change in the heart of the village.”
