A NEW café is set to open on Brilliant Street under plans approved by Bathurst Regional Council.
Orange-based Byng Street Pty Ltd lodged plans with council in October to convert existing retail space at 287A Brilliant Street to a café with a $15,000 fitout.
The shopfront, previously a hot water service outlet, is set among homes about 100 metres from the intersection with Stewart Street.
Floor plans lodged with the development application show a small café with a servery and coffee counter and a couple of indoor seats.
It is expected the business will target passing trade along the busy Mitchell Highway section of Brilliant Street near Bathurst Correctional Centre.
Conditions imposed as part of council’s approval for the development include a requirement that no tiles are to be removed from the existing façade of the building without prior council consent to help maintain the appearance of the building that stands within the Heritage Conservation Area.
