The former Rising Sun restaurant, on Holywell Street, Chesterfield, could be turned into a bar.

Documents add: “Proposed works include new shopfront windows and door, alterations to existing rear ‘lean-to’ extension and development of the existing rear garden.”

The plans say the bar would be open from 11am-1am, Monday to Saturday, and have three full-time staff and eight other part-time employees.

Proposals include a felt roof for the lean-to extension and n artificial lawn to the rear garden which would be lit by halogen lighting.
