Councillors vote to save ‘jewel in crown’

High street store Laura Ashley is set to close to focus on online sales

High street store Laura Ashley is set to close to focus on online sales

PLANS to turn the town’s Laura Ashley shop into a cafe or restaurant have been thrown out by councillors.

The high street brand, located in the Montague Centre, in Liverpool Road, will leave the site within the next few months to focus on online sales.

Planning officers recommended that the application be refused as it would ‘result in the loss of an important retail unit which forms part of a ‘gateway’ into the town shopping area’.
