Reef Estates has applied for planning permission to use the former Santander bank in Station Road as a restaurant.

It said the branch has been empty for six months after the building society moved to new premises in the town.

The application says there has been no building society, bank or estate agent interest as “the retail market has been difficult due to the economy”.

But there has been “strong interest” from restaurants and the change would create 20 jobs and see it gets a £300,000 re-fit.

Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council will make a final decision on changing the class of the building from financial and professional services to restaurant and café.
