PLANS to allow a takeaway in Lymm to open until midnight on Sundays are causing a stir.

Chickenville opened on The Cross in the village earlier this year.

It is next to Sainsbury's.

Now the owners want to extend the hours to open earlier in the week and all day on Sundays – until midnight.

The application will be discussed by councillors at a meeting of the development management committee on Wednesday.

Cllr Anna Fradgley has objected on the basis that the proposals are in a quiet village centre, with close neighbouring residents.

She added: "The impact that the development would have on the residential amenity, through noise and disturbance is unacceptable."

Lymm Parish Council has also objected on the basis that the originally approved opening hours were a factor in the granting of the original permission.

And it adds that other nearby premises have tougher restrictions on their opening.

Planning officers have recommended the scheme be approved.

They conclude: "The proposal would result in longer opening hours.

"The opening of the premises earlier would not cause a detrimental impact on the amenity of neighbouring properties. The opening later on Friday evenings and in the evening on Sundays/Bank Holidays, is considered to be unfortunate given the proximity to nearby housing. However, the proposals are considered to be on balance, acceptable and would not give rise to significant impacts above those previously considered."
