Plans for vintage tea room in Grantham submitted
Plans for a vintage tea room in Westgate have been submitted to the district council.
The applicant wants to set up the tea room at 85 Westgate which was last used as an indoor market.
Mrs Julie-Ann Tullo has submitted the plans and in her application she says she needs change of use from retail to use of the building as a cafe or restaurant. Mrs Tullo told the Journal she did not wish to talk about the details of her plans for the tea room until it is determined by South Kesteven District Council.
In her application she says: “The premises have previously been used as a public house with a restaurant, and an indoor market with a cafe. The only change is that it is classed as A1, and needs an A3 certificate for a vintage tea room. The kitchen is in place but needs to be refurbished before use. The front, apart from the decor, is already all in place.”
An indoor market opened in the premises in 2015, fronted by the Market Cafe. Previously it had been the Club Miami nightclub. The total floorspace of the premises is 225 square metres.
If the plan is approved the team room will initially employ one full-time staff member and three part-time staff.
