A neighbourhood shops development has been approved for a site in Greenock.
Inverclyde Council officials have agreed that a convenience store and three small commercial units can be built at the former Scottish Water site in Kilmacolm Road, opposite Burnhead Street.
One of the smaller units will be a hot food takeaway. The others will be available for shop or cafe use or for businesses such as a hairdresser. Twenty-two parking spaces will be provided.
Applicant TB Properties (West) Ltd say there is market interest in convenience store floorspace and small shop units although no operators have been announced.
Planners said that the development would have a positive impact in bringing a “vacant site which presently detracts from amenity” back into productive use.
They added that it would have “clear community and economic benefits” by providing modern and accessible shopping facilities for residents.
