Takeaway plans for Maltby refused

A PLAN to open a hot food takeaway in Maltby was refused because it would harm the “character of the shopping centre.”

Applicant Peter Rutter wanted to convert a unit on High Street, which was formerly an estate agent and Greggs bakery.

But Rotherham Borough Council rejected the proposal. A spokesman said: “The council considers the loss of the existing retail unit to a hot food takeaway in this prime shopping street would be detrimental to character of the shopping centre.”
