A chip shop will be converted into a wine bar and restaurant.

Warwick Lane Developments Ltd has been given permission from Adur and Worthing Councils to transform The Chip Shop in Goring Road, Worthing, into a new drinking venue.

According to the plans, the wine bar will be open seven days a week with occasional live music.

There will be a mixture of tabled seating and bar stools for customers to sit on.

The venue will also have a kitchen area behind the bar where food will be prepared and cooked.

At the moment, the proposed opening hours are 8am until 11pm from Wednesday to Saturday, and 8am until 10.30pm from Sunday to Tuesday.

The only live music to be played will come from an "unamplified piano", with part of the planning agreement stating that there will be "no more than one singer and one musician" performing at the same time.

A spokesman for Environmental Health also said that any speakers in the venue will need to be mounted on to "anti-vibration mounts" to prevent sound being transmitted into the property above.

Before the plans were approved, a spokeswoman for Sussex Police shared concerns over the potential disturbance the venue could have on neighbouring residents.

She said: "Whilst I do not have concerns over the design and layout of the proposal, I do have concerns about the amenity of nearby residential occupiers in that they will be disturbed late into the night with the introduction of a wine bar into the area."

A resident who lives in the flats above also mentioned his concerns over the noise disturbance he could face, especially as a result of people gathering outside on the street.

He said: "I own the residential flat which is above the ground floor commercial unit and I am concerned about the noise and disturbance that the wine bar would cause. My bedroom has a window directly onto the high street."

The plans were approved on Wednesday by the council.

It is not yet known when work on transforming the venue will begin.
