A vacant building in Chesterfield town centre could be turned into a cafe.

Onki Stubbings, of Mamaccino Ltd, has submitted a planning application to Chesterfield Borough Council to transform 30 Middle Pavement - inside the Pavements Shopping Centre - into a cafe, which would create three full-time roles and one part-time position.

The planning application states: "The site is currently empty and has been empty for over 10 years.

"The interior was damaged by a fire about 10 years ago but the landlord has agreed to do the building work before we sign the contract.

"I believe the site used to be a green grocery store over 10 years ago."
