Sunderland City Council gave the green light to the plans this week (Wednesday, May 16).

It is expected to see the current branch of the bakery chain at The Green, in Southwick, move to the unit next door.

The scheme includes permission to sell food and drink and for it be consumed on the premises, meaning the new site could also have its own cafe and seating area for customers.
