Plans drawn up for former Army and Navy Stores in Fossgate

York Press: Plans drawn up for former Army and Navy Stores Plans drawn up for former Army and Navy Stores

DETAILED plans for how a shop in the centre of York will be turned into a bar and restaurant have been handed in.

Businesswoman Rachel Greaves won permission to turn the former Army and Navy Stores at the top of Fossgate into a restaurant last year, following the closure of the shop in 2012 after 93 years.

A full planning application, covering how the revamp will be carried out, has now been submitted to City of York Council, with a decision expected to be made next month.

The work will include structural and roof repairs, a new shopfront and windows and two new staircases.

Documents sent to the authority say the work “will not harm the fabric and features for which the building is noted”.

Good luck with it. That part of york (apart from the bluebell) is fast becoming a very inviting place to both eat and drink.

For those who denigrate bars/restaurants etc what else do you suggest that is financially viable?
York is a leisure town, attracting 7 million tourists or so, should we make it uninviting?
I don't see many bars/restaurants closing down indeed they are opening all the time...like all business some do well, some do not but having lots of them gives an enviable mix
Perhaps York would be better if it was like Bradford or Middlesbrough where there is little to attract anyone?
