Permission is being sought to turn a former charity bookshop into a new wine bar.
Deborah McGlynn-Hale and Stuart Hale have made an application to East Suffolk Council for a premises licence for the former Books & Vintage shop in Walton High Street, Felixstowe.
Books & VIntage opened in late 2020 but closed in the autumn after a severely disrupted year of trade due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
It was run by the BASIC Life Charity Group, which also runs two charity shops - one in Walton High Street and the other in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe - and works with local churches to run and support a string of community pop-up shops providing food for those in need.
The council is currently carrying out consultation on the proposals for The Little Wine Bar - people have until January 14 to make representations.
The premises licence would allow on and off sales of alcohol every day from 11am to 10.30pm and the bar/shop would be open from 11am to 11pm.
