Planning documents from agent Loe Design state: “There is a real opportunity to enhance this side of Miller Arcade, increasing footfall and activity along Birley Street.

“The café proposal will offer high end design, beautiful food and coffee with a healthy undertone. This could be the pull that this street needs.

“With Preston branded an ‘Up and coming northern city’ now is the time to invest in a diverse selection of venues and enriching design schemes.

“This café will bring a bright and sunny vibe to the historical arcade, providing a new cornerstone food outlet and destination for Preston.”

Plans show that the café would also have an outside seating area.

And it would be open seven days a week from 7.30am until 9pm.
