A TOWN centre nightclub and bar has put forward plans for its own takeaway.

Hollywood in Barrow has submitted proposals to council planners for a new takeaway area at the Cavendish Street nightspot.

The site is also home to the Manhattans and Broadway nightclubs.

Hollywood is an American-themed bar and eatery that is a favourite for weekend revellers.

In a statement making up part of the plans, bosses said: "Hollywood is an existing bar/restaurant located at ground floor level with full disabled standard access.

"The proposal is to convert 20 square metres of the total 300 square metre footprint to a takeaway food area using the existing entrance from Cavendish Street.

"The change of use will not involve any exterior alterations to the building fabric, all works are internal.

"The proposed change of us is seen as being complementary to the property's existing use."

The plans say the new takeaway will be open between 6pm and 2am seven days a week.

Proposals also say it will add two new members of staff to its existing 10.

If the plans are approved by councillors, the new takeaway will compete against a number of others on Cavendish Street for the late-night food market.

Situated at the other end of Cavendish Street, Barrow Indian Cuisine is the town's newest restaurant and also offers takeaway food.

Opposite Hollywood is Mithali Indian takeaway, Canoodles and Sizzle In, which is open until 3am on Friday and Saturday.

Others nearby include Wrapport and Water Lily.

Grilla Cheese opened its takeaway nearby on Dalkeith Street last year after moving from the market.

Hollywood is owned by Jackie and Rick Lucas who used to own the floating nightclub Princess Selandia.

It was transformed from an industry carrier ferry before it closed in 2010 and was taken back o Denmark.

Sitting in Buccleuch Dock, it was once a 2,400-capacity venue.
