The building, which is on the same road as the Manuka and Libertine bars, was formerly an Eastern European supermarket.

The application was submitted by Pink Café Ltd. It is understood that the company owners also run The Woods Burger Kitchen, which is also in Portland Road.

According to the licencing application, which is posted in the window of the building, the alcohol serving hours being sought are 11am to 10pm on Sunday, 11am to 11.30pm on Monday to Thursday and 11am to 1.30am the following morning on Friday and Saturday.

The period for members of the public to voice their opinions about the application ended on Tuesday.

On Monday, February 4, planning permission was granted by Worthing Borough Council’s planning committee to turn the shop into a ‘restaurant/café with no primary cooking’.
