A NEW café could be coming to Witton Street, with Cheshire West and Chester Council currently considering a planning application.

The plans would see a coffee shop – complete with outdoor dining space – take over the former Restored Furniture shop at the junction with Timber Lane.

A brief planning application, submitted earlier this month, suggests the café would open between 8am and 5pm Monday to Saturday, and from 9am to 4pm on Sundays.

The 1,543sq ft unit would require one full-time staff member along with three part-time employees, the Staffordshire-based applicant suggests.

On top of a kitchen and interior seating, the plans include space for eight al fresco dining tables.
