A vacant shop could become a new restaurant and takeaway under fresh plans.

Mrs Tham Thi Pham from Slough has submitted to Bucks Council a ‘change of use’ application for Eton Place, 64 Burnham High Street.

Plans outline the conversion of the existing vacant retail unit to a new restaurant and takeaway.

The new business will take on five full-time employees.

Planning permission was granted for two flats but has not been implemented, according to a report.

The Eton Place development was constructed in around 1988.

“The existing retail property has been vacant for an extensive period of time,” a statement reads. “This is detrimental to Eton Place and the neighbouring heritage assets.

“By converting the vacant retail premises into a restaurant and takeaway unit, the intention is to preserve and enhance Eton Place and the surrounding heritage properties.”

Planning officers will now decide what becomes of the application.
