Plan to bring KFC to The Malls

First published in News

THIRTY jobs will be created if a fast food chain gets the green light to open up a new restaurant in The Malls.

Amsric Foods Limited has applied to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council for permission to change the use of two units next to the Jessops store in Castle Square, The Malls.

If the borough council gives the green light to the application, popular chain KFC will occupy the currently empty premises and it will be used as a restaurant and takeaway.

If approved, the restaurant will be open between 7am and 11pm, Monday to Sunday.

The application says: “The proposed change of use will contribute to increased diversity of use in the centre, so creating new reasons to visit and dwell and so encouraging footfall.”

It will be great to be able to grab a quick meal before a visit to the Anvil as at present there is nowhere particularly close to the theatre to eat but hope the rubbish is kept under control.
