Café to replace launderette?
PUBLISHED: 09:00 24 November 2012
PORTISHEAD could soon lose its only self-service launderette but gain another café.
A planning application has been submitted for change of use of the Dolly Tub, a launderette at the top of Avon Way, to a café.
The proposals have been put forward by applicants who live in Portishead who say they are keen to provide a family friendly café with a small, children’s play area and space to park prams and buggies.
Proposed external alterations include an extract duct, a new window at the back of the property and a sun canopy above the shop front.
While Portishead has a wealth of cafés and restaurants in the town centre and around the marina area, the West Hill shopping area, which includes retail units at the top of Avon Way and The Triangle, has always lacked such facilities.
The café, which would be open seven days a week from 8am, is expected to provide employment for three full-time workers and one part-time member of staff.
