Millionaire property developer has submitted plans for a 100 seater restaurant in Formby village

Exciting new plans have been put forward to Sefton Council for change of use from A1 retail to A3 restaurant in the former Dorothy Perkins store on Chapel Lane in Formby.

The planning application was submitted by millionaire property developer Mike McComb who is a resident in Formby.

Dorothy Perkins store closed on Chapel Lane on last month on Saturday 18th June after 27 years of trading in our Bubble. Residents have been worried about the closure and the length of time the premises would remain empty so, this should be a welcome application which could only enhance our village and make it more desireable.

Other restaurants and bars in the village include the brand new Wetherspoons Lifeboat which has just opened its doors on Tuesday 12th July and also the very popular Hop & Horn which is approaching its one year anniversary this weekend.

The proposed application includes bi-folding doors to the front and over one hundred seats in the restaurant with washroom facilities to the first floor.

The proposed uses will ensure the continued use of the building through both floors, and therefore it’s continued maintenance, for the foreseeable future which is a key and material consideration of the proposal so therefore should be viewed favourably by the council.
