Former Dundee registrar office to become a Bangladeshi restaurant
The former registrar office of the city of Dundee in Scotland could be transformed into a Bangladeshi restaurant. Only the approval of the council is needed. Diagrams showing plans to convert the commercial building on Commercial Street have been submitted to the local authority’s planning officers by LJR +H Architects. Applicants Mr and Mrs D Ghatak will name the restaurant Shaheen Bangladeshi Restaurant and Takeaway. The building would retain much of its old appearance. The proposal has the idea of converting the office’s existing area, to the right of the main entrance, into a takeaway, a bar area and an office that can accommodate 11 customers. The plan is to convert the former reception area into a 74-seat restaurant with eight four-seat tables and seven six-seat booths. On the other hand, the two former wedding areas will function as a dry store and kitchen. The development will also house a dedicated chicken store for raw meat. To install a new ventilation system for the kitchen, the applicants plan to make a few changes in the structure. An LJR+H architect Bob Hynd told the Evening Telegraph: “The application is the first officially registered effort to bring the building back into use since it closed two years ago. We’re still working on supporting the statement but there will be a lot of public interest.” “‘The building has a really high quality façade. The window frames and ironmongery are all solid brass and the façade is polished granite. The council must have spent a lot of money on it originally and the intention is to repair and retain that,” he added. According to him, the lettering will be adhesive so that they don’t have to drill into the walls. The registrar’s office, which closed in June 2015, hosted the first same-sex marriage of Scotland in December 2014. All registrations of birth, deaths and marriages were moved to the council’s City square headquarters after the Commercial Street operation had closed.
