Coffee seller’s plan debated

Have your say

PLANS for a trader to sell coffee on one of Sheffield’s busiest thoroughfares are back before a council licensing board.

Oliver Coppard, who currently works as a Barnsley Council officer, is applying for permission to site an ornate coffee trike on Howard Street, between the city centre and rail station, which would trade as Caffe Cucina.

But the proposal resulted in objections from nearby coffee cafe, Roast, also located on Howard Street, which was unhappy about the competition.

Mr Coppard’s application was due to have been considered by Sheffield Council’s licensing board last month.

A decision will now be made at a meeting on Thursday.

Councillors will consider two sites – at the top of Howard Street and down the hill, away from Roast.
