Plans are afoot to change a building with a former Chinese restaurant and take away into flats.
Six new homes are intended for the double property at Dover High Street, which had the Good Luck eaterie.
The existing shop front would be demolished and the scheme is also to create both a bin and cycle store.
A planning application has been submitted to Dover District Council.
Details on the authority’s online planning portal show that the extended shop front is believed to date from the 1970s.
It is thought the owner lived upstairs and the adjoining property was a house on its own.
The building is also understood to have been affected by a Second World War bomb that exploded close by.
This damaged the top of it and it was rebuilt with one less floor.
The applicant is a Mr M Simpson of Maidstone and the plan, numbered 21/01175 can be viewed on the council website here.
