Plans have been submitted for the change of use of premises to enable a new Italian restaurant to open in Wilmslow in town centre.
Individual Restaurants, owners of the Piccolino chain and the former Bar & Grill in Alderley Edge, are in the process of purchasing the property at 4-12 Swan Street with the intention of converting it into a Piccolino restaurant.
The company do not propose to make any external changes to the vacant building, previously occupied by the Brewhouse & Kitchen, and says it plans to invest £1.5million in the property and create 40 jobs which will be a mixture of full-time and part-time.
Individual Restaurants intend to have the restaurant open and trading by Christmas.
