PLANS have been lodged to turn part of a car showroom into a site for household storage.

South Lakes Car Sales in Barrow has put forward proposals to house 14 large steel containers for self-storage.

The storage containers would site on land at the back of the car dealership in Salthouse Road, used as a car storage compound.

The containers would be closed off by a metal surrounding face.

The proposals are out for public consultation.

They will eventually be decided upon by councillors.
