A former tattoo parlour in Chester could soon become an eco-cafe, if a planning application submitted by Nicholas Wells is approved.
The Chester Chronicle revealed that the aim is to create a “small, artisanal coffee shop” that would serve hot drinks, as well as a selection of cold foods like sandwiches and cakes.
But what will set it apart from other similar coffee shops are its eco credentials. According to the planning application, one of the main principles of the business will be waste minimisation.
“All cups and wrapping will be fully eco-friendly and 100 per cent fully compostable. Take-away customers will also be heavily incentivised to bring their own reusable take-away cups,” the application stated.
The newspaper noted that this is likely to be well-received by the local community, given a current local campaign to ban the use of plastic drinking straws in Chester.
This isn’t the only new business that could be coming to the town though, with a business owned by a former Olympic athlete also putting in a planning application recently.
The Chester Chronicle reported that the Fitness Space gym chain, which is owned by Tim Benjamin, a former 400m Olympic sprinter, has applied to change the conditions of use of a building on The Rows.
It wants to open a gym on the second floor of the premises, which is currently office space, but a change of use to allow it to be used for ‘assembly and leisure’ would enable the gym to go ahead.
