PLANS have also been submitted to create a champagne bar in Barnsley town centre.

Planners are being asked to consider a change of use for the vacant ice cream shop previously known as Treat, on Market Hill, to create a bar covering the ground floor and basement levels of the building.

Planning documents state it will serve drinks and snacks and provide entertainment in a ‘high end/upmarket establishment’.

The change would involve alterations to the shop front and, because it affects the setting of a listed building in a conservation area, planning permission is needed.

The building previously formed part of the high-end fashion retailer Pollyanna.
