The firm applied to the council in April to convert the old post office, in Regent Street, into a dessert parlour.

And this week the council granted permission for Kaspa’s to revamp the vacant building, but a timescale for the conversion is yet to be confirmed.

The building has been vacant for two years after the post office relocated across the road to Alexandra Parade.

A planning statement by Architectures Design Limited on behalf of the applicant said: “Kaspa’s has many stores now throughout the UK, and wherever they go they attract large footfall with huge social media attention that without question has a dramatic increase to the vitality and viability of any location they are situated within.”
