Plans have been revealed to open a new Subway sandwich shop in a unit originally destined to be a micropub.
The eatery could open in the ground floor of Charles Court, a new development of flats in Northdown Road in Cliftonville, Margate.
Drawings show the restaurant would have seating as well as a counter and a green wall embellished with the Subway logo.
But one neighbour has already objected, fearing the branch would be an "eyesore".
The site was sold for £300,000 along with planning consent for a micropub, but estate agents said at the time permission could be sought to change its use to "Class E", which includes restaurant use.
Housebuilders Future Homes said in a brochure advertising the new flats: "Following the tradition of the site, where originally Ye Olde Charles public house made way for the Holly Tree, at ground floor level there is also to be a micropub.
"It will add a totally new and different dimension to the development - a handy place for a cheeky drink and a bite to eat after a day on the beach - or in the office.
"A local operator is sought for this."
Charles Court resident Maxime Vernieuwe has lodged an objection to Subway's proposal, saying: "We believe having a restaurant would increase the chances of a fire, look unsightly and make a sale to a prospective future buyer more difficult.
"Past the visual eyesore, parking will also be affected on and near the property, not only by customers but also delivery drivers."
Kent already has 27 outlets of the sandwich shop, one being in Margate High Street.
