A bakery chain appears to have set its sights on moving into long-vacant shop in Sidmouth’s High Street.

The Herald reported in November how The Cornish Bakery had placed recruitment adverts online for management to run a new branch in the town.

And now a formal application from the firm, which used to trade as Pasty Presto, has been submitted to erect advertising signs at the SES building.

The plans show ‘Cornish Bakery’ branding above the ground floor window, with a vinyl sticker planned for one of the panes.

The former stationers building has sat empty for more than a decade and its owner has previously hit out at district planners for the number of ‘stumbling blocks’ he faced while trying to renovate the property.

The Cornish Bakery has around 30 branches across the country and sells sell pasties, pastries and coffee.

The Herald approached the firm for a comment on their new shop, but had not received a response by the time the paper went to press yesterday.
