A failed restaurant and closed beauty salon could be converted into a new city centre restaurant.Advertisement
Historic Miller Arcade is seeing something of a renaissance with recent openings and a new larger restaurant could be on the way.
What was the Sticky Chops restaurant closed in December 2013 and the unit has been empty since, as well as the former hair and beauty salon alongside it.
Units 17 and 18 of the grade II listed Arcade could be converted to create a new restaurant.
David Cox Architects has applied for planning permission to convert the units on behalf of Callaway Estates.
They state: “Details of the restaurant layout are at an early stafe and the granting of planning permission will be important to securing a lease.
“Unit this is achieved then the tenant will be unable to develop designs to a greater level of detail.”
In November last year the Arcade saw the Olive Tree Brasserie expand from Lytham St Annes to open a Preston restaurant.
Plans have also been passed for 45 studio apartments, a decked roof garden and a restaurant on the first floor of the Arcade.
