Internal alteration with the ground floor of 40 Bartholomew street to form Office accommodation for Rufus Publication and a coffee shop to the front of the building to be called the Rufus Coffee House
40 Bartholomew Street, Newbury, West Berkshire, RG14 7BE
This would be a fantastic addition to Bartholomew Street and help to bring back to life a unit that has been vacant (and in a poor state of repair) for a long time.
Although we have a good choice of coffee shops in the town centre, options in the Bartholomew Street South area of town are limited. Rufus Publications is exactly the sort of unique, independent business we need to be encouraging. Moving from their current office at 49 Bartholomew Street and opening up a corresponding coffee shop will really help to lift this area.
Newbury BID strongly supports this application and hopes that it will be given planning approval.
