The unit has remained empty since the Nottingham Building Society closed its Spalding branch in 2022.

Fireaway Pizza have more than 150 restaurants across Britain and Northern Ireland, from Aberdeen to Plymouth, and it is expected this latest addition will provide employment for up to five people at peak hours.

“The restaurant would provide 23 seats, spread over a floor space of 49.6sqm,” the planning officer’s report stated.

SHDC received one letter of objection from the public, raising concerns of potential smell and an increase in noise pollution.
