A NEW Thai food takeaway is planned for Kendal.

Thai chef Amporn Whitehead already runs a catering service for dinner parties and special occasions from her premises at Dockray Hall Industrial Estate, in the town.

She now plans to expand her business, Thai Kitchen in Lakeland, by offering a takeaway service, initially on Thursdays and Fridays from 12pm to 9pm.

Plans have been lodged with South Lakeland District Council.
