The branch closed in September last year.

The proposal would provide full-time jobs for up to 25 people and part time employment for up to 15 staff, according to the company.

Documents submitted with its application read: “The Potting Shed theme offers a relaxed feel, catering for families and offering food from a modern open kitchen. Key features of this chain are a terrace area to provide open air drinking and the provision of sheds (in this case a row of four) which would provide covered seating.”
