Former council offices in a shopping district of Ellesmere Port are set to be converted into a convenience store. Plans are underway to create a new boutique at 2-6 Church Parade on the Westminster estate.
The property owned by Cheshire West and Chester Council, formerly Portside Hub, has been vacant since October 2019. The local authority obtained planning permission to change the use of the office units to a store almost a year later.
Now an application has been made for a premises license by OK Convenience Ltd to sell alcohol between 9am and 10pm, seven days a week. The store’s proposed opening hours are 6.30am to 10pm.

The application states that the store “will sell groceries, newspapers, confectionery and liquor.” The premises are part of a row of shops and units, which includes a medical practice.
The consultation period on the proposals runs until June 29. A copy of the application can be viewed at the office of The Licensing Team, Cheshire West and Chester Council, The Portal, Wellington Road, Ellesmere Port, CH65 0BA.
The application can also be viewed on the public register via selfserve.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/registers/index.html?fa=licence_register§ion=licence_for_consultation
