It would be the first business to move into the historic street since a traffic ban was announced.

Sheffield City Council plans to close Surrey Street to vehicles between Norfolk Street and Pinstone Street next year.

Some existing businesses including Bird Opticians have objected to the plans, claiming it will further damage trade hit by making the road a dead end two years ago.
