OVER the past year, takeaways and food deliveries have been in high demand with lockdown and tier restrictions meaning we can’t visit some of our favourite restaurants.

It’s no surprise then, more plans are being proposed to open up a chippy in Bracknell, as the News revealed last week.

And that’s not the only takeaway plan that’s come forward since the pandemic began.

Here are three takeaway, fast-food or delivery proposals approved within the past year.

Wimpy, Princess Square

Bracknell News:

The burger chain will return to Bracknell after decades away next year.

Excitement began for the sit-down restaurant’s return when a planning application was lodged in June.

Bracknell News:

It was approved only a month later and work to set up Wimpy in Princess Square will begin early in the new year.

Who’s looking forward to a bender-in-a-bun?

Indian and Nepalese takeaway, Wildridings

For months it was unclear what sort of eatery a vacant unit at Wildridings Square would become after a planning application was submitted in June.

Bracknell News:

The proposal looked in doubt back in the summer after an environmental health officer raised concerns about noise and disturbance from the site.

But applicants submitted a new noise assessment report in July and convinced planning chiefs to approve their plans.

Before this was granted, new documents indicated the takeaway would sell Indian and Nepalese cuisine when it opens.

New Deliveroo-style food service.

Delivery services such as JustEast, Deliveroo and UberEats have most likely made a quid or two during the pandemic.

Soon they will have to compete with Hotboxd, a new food-delivery service which is setting up in Bracknell as only its second location.

Bracknell News:

The Western Centre will be the new home of Hotboxd after a planning application to set up here was approved in October.

The service has its own unique menu which you can order from using a mobile app.

Hotboxd already has a base in Alton operating from a menu which includes street food, burgers, vegetarian options, pub classics, ribs, pizzas and more.

Their Facebook page description reads: “Our food arrives quick-smart and as hot as it left the kitchen, thanks to our enroute heating tech. No need to crank up the microwave!!!”
