PLANS to open a new cafe bar in Lewes are due to go before a council approvals panel next week.
On Friday (5 August) a Lewes District Council permitting panel is due to consider an application to open new premises in a former shop at 29 High Street in Lewes.
The application comes from a Brighton-based company called Apiary by Bell Limited, seeking permission to serve alcohol and food between 8am and 11.30pm, seven days a week.
As part of the terms agreed with Sussex Police, alcohol can only be served to seated guests and should only be sold when food is available. According to their plans, the premises should have both indoor and outdoor tables.
The company would also be able to sell sealed alcohol for off-site consumption and take-away food.
Although no objections were raised by Sussex Police or other local authorities, the application has raised some concerns from local residents. These concerns are mainly related to the potential noise pollution from the store.
Both these residents and the applicant have an opportunity to present their views before the council members decide on the license.
