Bosses at the Abu Bakr supermarket on Kirkstall Road have submitted revised plans for a new cafe or restaurant in a side storage area.

The new application comes a month after similar proposals first submitted in November were last month refused by council planners due to a lack of information over opening hours and the change of use.

The latest proposals are partly retrospective and also ask to change the use of the overall building from tool/plant hire centre to a retail supermarket with ancillary café.

They include the insertion of new windows to front and side elevations, flue and AC/condenser units to both sides, bin store and a temporary storage container.

The planning application lists the opening hours as ‘unknown’.

Abu Bakr opened its Kirkstall Road store last year and offers retail and wholesale halal products, including poultry, fish, ethnic foods, fresh fruits and vegetables.

The store is based in the former HSS Hire building. First established in Queen’s Road, Hyde Park in 2001, the halal supermarket has since opened in Dewsbury Road in Hunslet Carr and on Roundhay Road in Harehills.
