A NEW fish and chop shop will open in Oldbury if proposals get the go-ahead from planners.

An application for a fish and chip shop next to the Post Office and general store on Newbury Lane has been submitted to Sandwell Council.

If the proposal gets the thumbs up the takeaway will open from 11.30am till 11.30pm seven days a week.

Notes to planners state the proposed site is a new build which is currently empty and joins onto the two-storey post office and general store which has accommodation above.

Stourbridge News:

It states there are car parking spaces at the front of the shop but that it is expected that the majority of customers will live locally and will walk to the fish and chip shop.

It goes on: "There is more good provision of street parking on Wallace Road and Ivy House Road."

The proposal was submitted by Kewal Singh, of Newbury Lane on July 21.
