AN APPLICATION to change the use of a unit on a Kendal industrial estate has been approved by Westmorland and Furness Council.

Unit two on Beezon Road Trading Estate is to be used for storage. It was previously reserved for 'general industrial' purposes.

A covering letter submitted by planning consultancy Smith & Love in support of the application says the applicant was MJF Pension Trustees Ltd and that the site is to be used by Atlantis Kitchens.

"The building [will] be used to store kitchen cabinetry, fixtures, fittings and appliances associated with kitchen installation," says the document.
