Popular East Lancs fish and chip restaurant in bid for drive-thru

Burnley and Pendle Citizen: An artist’s impression of the drive-thru An artist’s impression of the drive-thru

BOSSES at a popular East Lancashire fish and chip restaurant are bidding to become the latest addition to Burnley’s ‘takeaway mile’.

Plans have been unveiled by Colne-based Banny's for a new ‘drive-thru’ restaurant in Trafalgar Street as part of the third phase of the ‘On The Banks‘ regeneration project for the Weavers’ Triangle.

The gateway route is already home to a 24-hour McDonald’s and KFC drive-thrus, The Wok Place oriental restaurant and branches of Subway and Greggs.

Around 20 part-time positions would be created if the development secures planning permission, according to the company, which has made its name with their eaterie at the end of the M65 at Colne, near Boundary Mill.

Proposals provide for a 34-space car park and would be only yards away from a prospective hotel on the banks of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

Demolition has already taken place of the former Dexter Paints building, which occupied the site, next to Kitchen’s garage, and 35 Trafalgar Street and 1 Derby Street, forming the former Albert Mill, would also be bulldozed.

Planning agents have been eager to stress that the new venture, further along the street from the preserved old Habergham Eaves Parochial School, would blend in with the historic former cotton heartland.

A spokesman for the Campbell Driver Partner-ship said in a design statement: “The success of a drive-thru restaurant relies on visibility and corporate identity but also trades on quality.

“This building will be using high quality coursed stonework, large glazed areas with powder coated frames and a ‘flat’ metal cladding system.”

An archaelogical study has shown that Albert Mill, which dates back to the 1870s, is of local interest but its historical value has been diminished due to the loss of the northern part of the building.

Why can't we comment on the story about the Ofsted report into the Tauheedul Islamic school?
I mean doesn't take a genious does it? Secret filming where people have no warning and are just themselves or Ofsted report where the school has been given notification of the pending investigation.

Your opinion lacks common sense. The Ofsted inspections were 'no notice' inspections. The Dispatches programme offered no evidence of classroom malpractice and just made a story out of the opinions of a teaching assistant in the staff room in response to leading questions. Ofsted observed spontaneous clapping by children in the classroom. You just cannot prime children to do that in a 'no notice' inspection. So I would rather believe the evidence obtained by experienced professionals over that manufactured by a TV crew in need of a sensational story.

can it? the f&c in banny's take-away at boundary mill are excellent and unlike in the sit-down bit not overly extortionate.

so what do you suggest happens - the drive through in not built and there are no extra jobs for anybody (don't think that is a double negative) - would you prefer the hungry to go to well established lancashire family businesses such as mcdonald's burger king, and kfc?

would you prefer that the land stays derelict or developed and empty houses put on there?

pray tell what would be your grand plan?

Lets focus on jobs that pay any sort of wage before we worry about jobs that pay a high wage. Every one extra person working is one less claiming and although a nice well paid job would be nice minimum wage is good enough.

A huge chunk of my wage is filtered off in to a savings account for a mortgage to the point that I have less than if I was on minimum wage (not counting savings of course) and I manage a nice little flat on my own with no help other than my single occupancy discount on my council tax.

Of course they knew Ofsted was coming. It was an emergency visit following the disclosure that the school would appear on the Dispatches programme so it doesn't take a genius to work out they would soon be on their way. I wonder if the children were allowed to clap when they heard the result?

Also why did the school have to revise it's policy about the speakers invited? I'm sure they were fully aware before the events were arranged what would be said.

Totally agree with you, the Jew's are getting out of hand! Brain washing children in an illegal school. Absolutely no regard to the human society, the next generation of future extremism. Close them down, Well down Tauheedul for fantastic results.

The speaker didn't say anything wrong when they spoke at the school. The issue was something they had said on a previous speaking engagement at a university. They have revised their policy to research each speakers previous record more closely.

Inspectors know when clapping is spontaneous from young children and when it isn't. If it was easy to fool inspectors then no schools would end up falling foul of Ofsted especially when normally they are given notice. Inspectors can see what has happened over a period of time by talking to children and staff and parents.

So Banny's will get planning permission along with all the gaudiness that is 'necessary' to give them street presence because it supplies jobs - yet the nearby car wash, which also provides jobs and a useful service can't even put a non-illuminated sign up. So many double standards going on here.

I'd also say that hijacking this thread to comment on the school is wrong - but so is Lancs Telegraph's habit of not allowing comments for ALL news......what happened to freedom of speech and democracy?

"4 hotels have closed down in Burnley including national chains in the last 5 years."

Really? Care to name them?
I can name 3 - Sparrowhawk, Alexander, Windsor. The Plane Tree Hotel closed earlier than 5 years ago, but there are numerous public houses, some with eating facilities, which have closed their doors with the loss of employment for many local people.
