PLANS have been lodged to allow a Helensburgh ice cream parlour to start selling hot food.

Argyll and Bute Council planning officers are considering the application by Lucy Smith for a change of use from class 1 to class 3 premises at 26 West Clyde Street.

The address is the one listed for Vanilla ice cream parlour.

A decision is expected from the authority’s planning department by early March.

Comments can now be submitted on the proposal, which is listed as “change of use from class 1 to class 3 to accommodate the sale of hot food and installation of extract and ducting services”.
