Old disused garage could become Derbyshire's newest micropub

There are plans to create a micropub in a disused unit on a Derbyshire industrial estate (pictured above).

The new leaseholders of Unit 2A, in Monk Road Industrial Estate, Alfreton, want to turn the site into a wholesale business which would supply pubs with beer.

As part of this, they also want to be able to sell alcohol on the premises for people to take away or drink inside.

The unit was formally a motor workshop run by Amber Autos, and prior to that was a motorcycle sales and repair company.

As part of the application, the applicant is asking for permission to change the use of the building to a warehouse and micropub.

In planning documents submitted to the council, the applicant says they expect the business to employ two people full-time and five people part-time.

They said: "We aim to develop an alcohol wholesale business to supply pubs with beer and other products. We will take orders and dispatch during the week.

"We are applying for a change of use to A4 so that we can also sell to the public to take away and sit and have drinks in. We have already submitted an application for a premises licence and have been told the building has to have an A4 use.

"The sale of alcohol to the public is only aimed to be a small part of our trade and is seen by us as a way of supplementing our turnover creating an additional revenue stream."

They added that they wished for the warehouse aspect of the business to open from 7am to 5pm Monday to Friday, while the micropub would be open from midday to midnight, seven days a week (post Covid-19).
