A NEW cafe and bakery could be coming to Bolton.

A former fabric shop in Astley Bridge could become a cafe and bakery if plans are passed.

The owner of Alvi’s Exclusive Fabrics in Blackburn Road has informed the council of his intentions to make the change.

Latif Patel, who owns the business which has been closed for some time, has submitted a "prior notification application" for a change of use at the premises.

If this is approved, he could then submit more detailed plans.

Planning officers are due to make a decision by the end of June.
