A vacant former clothes shop in Bury St Edmunds town centre could become a Greek restaurant under new plans submitted to West Suffolk Council.

The empty Jaeger shop, which was Andy's Records in the 1980s and 1990s, could become 'The Olive Grove'.

George Kontakos has applied for listed building consent to install a flue and extraction/ventilation system and to re-paint the front elevation of 90 St John's Street, which is Grade II-listed.

A design and access statement by the Ely Company on behalf of Mr Kontakos, who also runs The Olive Grove, in Cambridge, said: "Due to the building changing from a retail to a restaurant this application is for a flue to be installed going through the roof of the rear extension, for a commercial kitchen."

It adds: "The front fa├žade of the shop, that is currently looking worn, will be treated with a green coat of paint (colour subject to approval) to match the restaurant's image, along with the addition of a sign."

90 St John's Street dates back to the early 19th century, with a long 20th century rear extension.

It is timber-framed and rendered, with a shallow-pitched slate roof, three storeys and a cellar.
