The go-ahead could be granted next Tuesday for a licensed coffee shop in Ecclesall Road.

Planners believe previous obstacles to the conversion of an empty shop next to Yankees restaurant, including outdoor seating and noise insulation, have been addressed.

But councillors remain under pressure from the Botanical Gate Community Association and Broomhill Green Party to reject the application for Couch, near Thompson Road. Proposed closing time is 10.30pm during the week, 11pm at weekends.
