A coffee shop could be opened at Trading 4 U on the Bellbrook Estate in Uckfield if plans before Wealden Council are approved.
Permission is sought to open a “small coffee shop” offering tea and coffee plus cakes and biscuits near the checkout area.
A planning application says the unit occupied by Trading 4 U has a selling area of nearly 1,200 square metres and the coffee shop would take about 50 square metres.
The application says: “Customers have requested this on many occasions when in the shop. We already have customer toilets. This will in no way affect our core business.”
The shop already sells confectionary and cakes.
