New youth cafe in Little Stonegate

A planning application has been submitted to change the use of 3 Little Stonegate into a youth cafe with associated offices, meeting and training spaces. The building until recently formed part of Borders book shop.
The building was originally a Methodist Chapel, built in 1851. It was altered and converted into a printing works in 1901. The building is grade 2 listed. In 2000 the building was incorporated into 1-5 Davygate. The building was last used for retail, with an ancillary cafe. Planning permission is being sought to change the use of the building to a youth cafe/training centre and general facility for young persons; similar to a youth club. The use would retain the cafe facilities on the upper level and include educational activities such as Duke of Edinburgh Award, homework clubs, interest groups and performance space. It is proposed to open between 08:00 and 22:00.
The planning reference is 11/00399/FUL and the application will be determined by the planning committee on 14th July.
