A Bransholme shopping complex is planning to expand
North Point Shopping Centre has submitted plans to Hull City Council to extend a wing and create room for more shops, restaurants and takeaways.
Existing stores will also be shrunk under the new plans in order for the shopping centre to make room for other retailers.
The plans will also see the eastern entrance of the centre rebuilt.
In the application, North Point "proposes construction of a new feature Eastern entrance to existing shopping centre."
The centre also wished to change the use of the retail units to flexible use, meaning businesses will be able to open restaurants, cafes, or hot food takeaways in the stores.
Environmental Health, which has already looked at the plans, have said in the event of any restaurants moving in, steps need to be taken to reduce food smells and noise.
In the application, they said: "Details of equipment to control the emission of fumes and measures to mitigate noise from the extraction equipment, shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority.”

“The approved equipment shall be installed before the use commences and thereafter retained and operated in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications and instructions.”
North Point Shopping Centre was opened in the early 1970’s, and already has more than 60 shops.
These include designer brands, high street retailers and local independent traders.
North Point is also home to a vibrant market place with over 30 stall holders. North Point is open seven days a week and offers free car parking.
