Wicklow County Council has been asked to approve plans to change the use of a former garage in Greystones to a bakery.

Deane Turner Associates, on behalf of Bread Nation Limited, have submitted proposals to change the use of the former Davis Motor premises on Eden Road in the town to a bakery.

The project would include the provision of a bakery at the former garage with a food retail area, serving hatch, a seating area along with a food preparation area.

Permission is also sought for the development of a  two-bedroom first floor apartment with ground floor rear access at the building.

A decision is due to be made by the local authority’s planning section on this application in mid-July.

Bread 41 confirmed its plans to open at the former Davis Motors premises earlier this year.

The popular artisan and organic bakery already has a premises on Pearse Street  in Dublin and specialises in long fermented breads, which are made using traditional methods.

No opening date has been announced for the new bakery in Greystones. 

Davis Motors, a family-run garage, closed its doors in December 2021 after trading in the town for over 50 years.
