THERE are already 29 takeaways in this busy Southampton road.

Yet number 30 looks to be on its way.

A planning application for a new piri piri restaurant in Portswood Road has been submitted to the city council.

Rio's hopes to change the use number 243, near October Books, to a hot food takeaway.

Portswood Piri Piri is situated just up the road at number 237.

Cllr Lisa Mitchell, who represents the area, told the Echo: "I agree with the many residents who would like to see a much broader mix of shops and services on our local high street.

"The planning system unfortunately doesn't always facilitate this but I'm hoping that there can be a discussion on how we achieve this locally as Southampton's new local plan is formed in the coming months."
