A takeaway coffee shop based in a Grade II listed vicarage in Preston City Centre has been granted permission to stay open.


The planning application for a change of use to convert part of the garage into the Holy Grounds takeaway was registered on 10 December 2021, six months after it opened. The application has now been approved by Preston City Council.

The business owned by Hannah Haigh offers a unique space for people to meet up casually and has been a soaring success ever since it opened back in June 2021.

Hannah said: “Opening a coffee shop in a garage is far from conventional and we’re delighted the council felt able to back the space being used in such a way. 

“As more people choose to live in the city centre, we hope to see more creative use of space. It’s so fun to be able to create a place for the community like this.”
