Licensing Application for the old Co-op Site 14 Church Street

Cllr. Moore has done some investigations on our behalf this morning regarding the licensing notice that has gone up at the old Co-op site on Church Street.

It would appear that the change of use to a café/office is no longer going ahead but has been sold on or rented on to a company Esha News.

As yet no planning application has been made for change of use to a shop, but it would more than likely be passed as there was a retail unit there before.

The previous planning application had strict opening times attached to the planning application of 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 6pm Saturday and Sunday.

This licence application is from 6am till 11pm daily, however, this will currently be overridden by the existing planning permission in place. This does not mean they cannot apply for the licence but that they cannot currently operate outside of the times currently in place on the planning permission given for the site.

If you have any queries/concerns regarding the licencing application, please contact

Cropwell Bishop Newsletter Restarting Soom

Covid stopped so much happening in the village, but now there is cautious optimism in the air.

Plans are afoot to restart publishing “Cropwell Bishop News” in the early summer: the first issue is already being put together.

Now is the time for anyone who wants to include an article, notice or advert, to send it to Janice Towndrow at the Old School.

Remember, a copy of the newsletter is delivered through the letterbox of every household in Cropwell Bishop, so it is the best way to keep everyone informed of what has happened, and what is going to happen.
