A former bingo hall looks set for a new lease of life after plans were approved to use part of the ground floor as a hot food take-away.

Blackpool Council planners have approved a scheme for the Palladium Buildings on Waterloo Road in South Shore.

Applicant Howard Plant also intends to install a new shop front in the premises, which was also approved.

The Palladium opened as a cinema in 1928 originally showing silent films, and was transformed into a bingo hall after the closure of the cinema in 1976, but the club closed in 2009.

The building is locally listed and a condition of the planning consent is the developer must consult with the council on the materials to be used.

But it was deemed the investment will benefit the local area.
