The application states: “For many years the Shawlands centre has struggled to fulfil its potential but it severely disadvantaged by being elevated above road level and has a series of ramps providing access which also are not easily accessible.

The restaurant would be on Kilmarnock Road.

“The application site is located at the northern edge of the centre and enjoys a large footpath area.”

The plans would see the unit converted into a ‘quality’ restaurant, operating between 10am-11pm on Sunday to Thursday, and 10am to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
