Shop front designs for the artisan coffee group were approved this week by Chichester District Council along with internal alterations.

The coffee brand removed plans for a projected sign attached to the wall after objections from CCAAC, the city council and the Chichester Society, which also objected to the ‘striking colour’ of the gold and black shopfront.

Harris+Hoole is owned by Caffé Nero, which recently opened its second city centre café.

Planning policy on retail balance does not apply to the new café, as the unit is already listed as a coffee shop.
