Cafe opportunity at new development

Owners of a new 65-apartment residential development in Chorley are looking for a business to take on a new café let on its site in the heart of the town centre.

Chorley Council, which owns the Primrose Gardens extra care scheme, is looking for a local business to operate the café, which will serve the residents and the wider community.

It comes with a fully-fitted kitchen, space to seat around 50 people and the potential to expand outdoors.

Councillor Alistair Bradley, Leader of Chorley Council, said: “It’s an exciting time as we see another of our major town centre developments near completion and we are now looking to get a local business to occupy the café.

“There is lots of potential with a dance hall and bookable conference room on site, which means there will be a lot of natural footfall, not withstanding its excellent location in the town centre.

“It’d be great to see a borough-based business take on this opportunity and make a success of it as this will become part off the community, not just an ordinary café.”

The £9 million development, off Fleet Street, has been built by Chorley Council with support from Lancashire County Council and Homes England.

The café is ready for someone to move in straight away and the council is looking for a first-class business to take it on.

“If people want to know a bit more about what’s available then the can get in touch with us and we’ll show them around,” said Councillor Bradley.

“The facilities inside are top quality and we think this could be a very profitable business for the right business.”

The first residents will be moving into the development in the summer and anyone wanting more information about the café let should visit primrose-gardens.com or call 01257 515151.
