Cork Coffee Roasters and Louis Copeland get the go ahead for new Cork stores 
Cork Coffee Roasters on Bridge Street.

Planning decisions have cleared the way for two new businesses in the city with Cork Coffee Roasters set to open a new cafe on Anglesea Street and tailor Louis Copeland to open a premises on Academy Street.

City Hall planners have given the go-ahead for a change of use of a vacant unit at 16 Anglesea Street from retail to coffee shop/cafe use.

Anna Strickland of Cork Coffee Roasters has been granted permission for the change and the premises would be independent company's third outlet.

Their first premises on Bridge Street opened in 2008 and was followed by a second unit on French Church Street in 2015.

As well as their cafes, Cork Coffee Roasters specialise in small-batch coffee roasting and espresso preparation, and espresso equipment.

Separately, Irish tailor Louis Copeland is set to open the company's first Cork outlet.

The store is to be located in a unit fronting onto both Academy Street and French Church Street.

City Hall planners have granted permission for the replacement of the shopfront and windows to 17a Academy Street, a unit most recently occupied by Alan Keville hair salon.

Louis Copeland is a well-known name in Irish fashion for more than a century.

The business currently has six stores in Dublin and Galway.

The premises on Academy Street is close to Opera Lane which already accommodates many top fashion outlets.
