Wine bar plans for town centre office space

Office space in Wrexham town centre could be converted into a wine bar.

In an application submitted to Wrexham Council it has been proposed that the ground floor of 36 High Street is converted into the new bar / wine bar.

The property currently houses the offices of insurance broker, Arthur J Gallagher.

However if the change of use is approved the building will be open between 9am and 1am, seven days a week.

It is thought that four – two full time and four part time – jobs will also be created.

Details provided within the application’s heritage, design and access statement, say: “The ground floor of 36 High Street is currently occupied by Arthur J Gallagher and is used as offices for insurance broker purpose. The original building encompasses No’s 36 and 37 High Street and is Grade II Listed.

“This is an 18th century house in use as a ship, with an earlier rear wing. The building contains traces of earlier timber framing and was extensively renovated in 1980. The listing date of the building was 16 June 1980.

“The building is within the Wrexham town centre and forms part of an important group of buildings on the south side of the High Street.”

As part of the plans some external and internal alternations are proposed, including a new fascia sign, painting and the creation of a new bar in the front office area.

The application will be considered for approval at a later date
