Talk about fast food…
Rubber-burning race venue York Motorsports Village wants to open a fish and chip take-away and restaurant.
The Monks Cross venue is next to the new York Community Stadium complex, due to open next year – and its owners sense an opportunity.
“Restaurant and take-away retailers are proving successful in this business park, and with the new Community Sports Stadium underway, the market for food retail will naturally grow,” they say in a planning application to City of York Council.
York Motorsports Village is North Yorkshire’s only indoor karting circuit.
It has always offered refreshments to competitors and their families but this application would take things up a level.
The plans envisage a two-storey extension to the Kathryn Avenue building.
This would include a 52-seater restaurant on the first floor and a take-away servery on the ground floor, with proposed opening hours of 8am-11pm daily.
The restaurant windows would overlook the new stadium. And the plans ensure full accessibility via ramps and a new lift.
