An application has been submitted for a gelateria next to the Market Cross, taking over the empty former Moda in Pelle leather retailer’s site.

Bailey’s Artisan Gelateria is behind the bid for the 2-3 West Street listed building and has submitted a planning application to Chichester District Council.

The company says it ‘creates stunningly good hand made gelato’ on its website.
