Unique village cafe plan revealed at former petrol station

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

PLANS have been unveiled to turn a tiny disused village petrol station into a unique cafe.

Entrepreneurs Kieran Carnwell and Jennifer Bedford have applied for permission to open the new business on the site of the former Dell filling station in Oakamoor.

The site, near the Cricketers Arms pub at the bottom of Star Bank, has been derelict for decades.

But Kieran, aged 22, who is originally from Cheadle, is keen to breathe new life into the premises after buying it for just £1,500 in June last year.

He said: “I want to make something of the old filling station because I see it as a great opportunity.

“There’s such a lack of businesses in Oakamoor, so I bought the site 18 months ago.

“We’ve been putting together a planning application because I need permission for change of use, but the idea is to knock down what’s there and completely rebuild it.
