Adults in the district of Wigan could soon benefit from a new training center
Adults in the borough could benefit from a new training center, if the plans are approved.
Candidate Lee Povah, director of Elysium Training and Consultancy, wants to transform the use of a vacant building at 31a Astley Street in Tyldesley into a cafe and adult learning center.
Leigh-based Elysium describes itself as a specialist provider of alternative education and helps young people and adults facing social, emotional and mental health issues.
The plans indicate that the “commercial property” will be developed to form an open plan office and teaching space on the first floor and a cafe on the ground floor.
The app states that Elysium is a training provider providing adult education as a subcontractor to Wigan Council, under the adult education budget of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA).
The planning documents submitted to the board read: “The client has requested that Elysium be a center for the 2021 census, which will be digital learning.
“The cafe will operate Monday through Friday, with reduced hours on weekends.
“The training center will be open during office hours, potentially extending to evenings as needed.
“Although there is no attached car park, the building is 200 meters from the Upper George Street park and ride and 300 meters from Tyldesley town center with its many car parks.
“The property also enjoys a location on the guided bus route, with regular access to Leigh, Atherton and Manchester.”
The documents say the cafe will serve light refreshments, hot and cold drinks, and prepackaged cold foods. There would be no seating area inside and the cafe will be open for take out only.
They added: “The building is currently vacant. The current use of the building is commercial.
“The ground floor has an office, kitchen and toilet, with staircase access to the first floor where there are two offices.
“The guided bus lane is well used by the public and a small facility offering light refreshments such as hot and cold drinks, sweets etc. would be welcome. ”
