Plans to transform an empty Lichfield shop into a fish and chip shop have been given the go-aead – despite opposition from local residents.

An application to transform the site at 44 Wheel Lane was approved by Lichfield District Council.

The shop has been empty since a computer store closed in 2013.

However, there had been opposition from local residents with one writing that a seating area in the shop would “encourage loitering”.

He added: “This application remains an anti-social proposition which demonstrates a continued blatant disregard for the local residents.”

But the plans will now become a reality after the scheme was given the green light.

Full details of the proposed changes can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s planning website.

  1. I’m looking for a shop unit to open a new sex toy and video outlet. I think this would be the ideal location.
