New plans for diner submitted

A NEW Frankie and Benny’s restaurant could still be a possibility at Parkgate, despite earlier plans being refused.

The retail park owners, British Land, have submitted revised plans for the fifties-style eaterie, that could create more than 30 jobs.

It would replace the existing management and toilet block in the centre of the Parkgate retail park, but was turned down on its initial application due to fears of it attracting trade away from Rotherham town centre.

Rotherham rejected the plans at officer level in June.
