Plans unveiled to transform former Notts convenience store into a burger restaurant


A former local grocery store could be transformed into a gourmet burger restaurant.

Plans have been submitted to Rushcliffe Borough Council for a change in use of the Pricewise store on Trent Boulevard, Lady Bay, which recently closed.

The applicant wishes to convert the property into a Burg branch, specializing in artisanal smash burgers, which can accommodate up to 14 diners.

Burg already has a takeaway in Mapperley and will soon be opening a second branch in Bramcote Lane, Wollaton, on the former Homecraft Interiors site.

The attached burger menu offers a choice of 11 burgers including the Big Burg Khalifa with triple beef and nachos, Flamin ‘Peri Peri with grilled chicken and spicy sauce, and a veggie bean burger.

Side dishes of chicken bites, fries, nachos, onion rings and hash browns are also served, along with milkshakes and soft drinks.

Residents, who campaigned to save the Pricewise store when a co-op opened in the neighborhood, have mixed feelings.

Edward Charter said: “Sounds good. It would be nice to have a variety of take out options available.”

However, Catherine Bailey is not so enthusiastic. “There are far too many unhealthy fast food outlets in the area now. We need a greater variety of stores where we can buy products. A good local farm store, repair shop, fruit and veg, fishmongers, butchers. another restaurant. “

Marie Slater said: “I’m not sure we need a hamburger restaurant in Lady Bay. McDonalds is right down the road, the chip shop sells burgers, CHEFF sells healthy burgers, so is the pub. Poppy and Pint and the Lady Bay pub. “

Some people worry about traffic.

Liz Williamson opposes the plans. She said: “It’s utterly ridiculous. The cars around this intersection are already crowded with delivery drivers.”

Anna Fellows said: “I walk this stretch of Trent Boulevard most weeknights and there are always loads of cars pulling up on the sidewalk and idling while their drivers collect food. – often delivery drivers.

“I’m sick of having to walk my toddler through all the vapors of stationary vehicles with their engines running and trying to avoid the moving ones. ”
