PLANS have been submitted for a new dessert restaurant in Shawlands.

If approved a new restaurant offering desserts with take-away facility would open in Pollokshaws Road.

In a planning statement, Bennett Developments and Consulting say the property they want to take over has been empty since March, 2015. It was previously occupied by a Polish dairy.

The planning statement adds: "The proposed development will see this vacant unit turned into a quality dessert outlet specialising in the full range of desserts, sweets, pastries other fried foods such as doughnuts,

as well as coffee, tea and other beverages.

"This type of venue is hugely popular in Europe and over the last few years has been sweeping through the UK. It is particularly popular with a young demographic. One need only check on Google to see the number of such outlets and the expansive range of treats on offer."

The planning statement continues: "The range of desserts will be expansive and include intricate and decadent ice creams, such

as nitrogen ice cream, freakish milk shakes known as freakshakes in a myriad of unusual and unlikely flavours as well as other tasty cakes and sweet dishes. There will also be a range of desserts which will be gluten free and others for vegans and vegetarians."

The application has already attracted objections from residents who have said there is too many restaurants and take-aways in the area. They are concerned about litter.

A decision is expected on the plans in April.
