A FORMER Musselburgh bakery could be turned into a takeaway restaurant.

The premises, on the town’s Stoneybank Terrace, could be transformed under plans being weighed up by East Lothian Council.

Rhiannon Properties is keen to make changes inside and outside the building, which was home to a business named Quinnsters.

Developers hope to create a business that “will be enjoyed by the surrounding area”.

A supporting statement, including alongside the planning application, reads: “The proposed development will see the change of use of an existing vacant property into a hot food takeaway.

“This will be constructed to the highest standard and incorporate all the equipment and measures necessary to ensure that it will operate to the highest standards which will ensure that it will not impact negatively on the amenity of the surrounding area.

“The new outlet will offer a new facility to the area which will be enjoyed by the surrounding area.”

Customers would still enter the building from Stoneybank Terrace, with a servery then leading to a kitchen and preparation area.

A waste and recycling store would be created to the rear of the premises.

The applicant hopes the business could be open from 10am to 11pm Sunday to Thursday and an hour later on Fridays and Saturdays.
