PLANS to convert a beauty salon into a chicken restaurant have been submitted to Bournemouth planners.

Food company SC Chicken Limited has applied for a change of use application for 534 Wimborne Road in Winton.

The premises were formerly a beauty salon known as Zvoo Hair and Beauty.

Now SC Chicken wants to turn it into a restaurant and hot food takeaway.

According to the design and access statement: "The unit has been vacant for a number of months with very little interest and the applicant wishes to obtain planning permission to change the use and to occupy the premises.

"Conversion of the unit will involve minimal external works to the rear of the building, limited to the insertion of a cooler unit at the first-floor level and a ventilation duct at ground floor level."
