LERWICK looks set to be the next place in Shetland to have a cake fridge after proposals for one on St Olaf Street got the thumbs up from planners.
An application had been submitted from Aneta Lotowska to site a cake fridge next to an existing house at the north end of the street near to Commercial Road.
The fridge would be located inside a wooden shed.
A report from Shetland Islands Council’s planning team said that the “proposal benefits all parties involved and supports the establishment of a local business in their venture”.
“The proposed cake fridge is offering a new service that will contribute to the viability of an existing settlement,” it added.
There are a number of cake fridges and cupboards dotted around Shetland, from the original one at East Burrafirth, to Hoswick and South Nesting.
