National clothing chain Fat Face has been granted permission to transform Nantwich’s former Ye Olde Vaults pub.

Cheshire East Council has approved the conversion of the Grade II-listed three-storey building in High Street.

The new store could create about a dozen new jobs for the town, with nearest Fat Face outlets in Chester and Knutsford.

Planners agreed the proposed alteration was of “acceptable design” and that there would be “no adverse impact” on the Grade II-listed building and Nantwich Conservation Area.

Other town centre retailers have welcomed the addition.

David Salt, who runs La Maison gift shop, said: “It would be a good addition to the town and will attract even more people into the area.”

Steve Lawson, owner of Nantwich Book Shop, in High Street, said: “The addition of a brand like Fat Face would be a positive one for the town. It is something different.”
