A former High Street bank in Broadstairs could be converted into a bar and escape rooms.

The Lloyds bank building  closed in July 2017 as part of cost-cutting measures.

A review of the branch was carried out by the Lloyds Banking Group who said there were just 30 regular weekly customers and 494 that used the branch on a monthly basis.

An application has now been made to Thanet council for permission to convert the property to a mixed use drinking establishment, escape rooms and the use of tables and chairs on the pavement outside.

A revised application, submitted on October 3, is being dealt with by John Elvidge Planning Consultancy.
