It will now move into a vacant space in Palmerston Road just across the road from its former location next to The Food Factory.

The new unit will undergo a refurbishment ahead of the changes with services delivered from two modern serving positions – one fully-screened and one open-plan.

The relocation comes following a public consultation in which 87 people commented on the proposals, backing the move.
