COSTA Coffee is planning to open a new branch in Greenwich.
The chain has applied to Greenwich Council for permission to turn 44-46 Greenwich Church Street, next to the Spanish Galleon pub, into a coffee shop.
It is proposed that the new coffee shop would open between the hours of 7am and 10pm daily.
The planning application reveals that Costa's lease inside Waterstones is shortly coming to an end and won't be renewed.
The premises are currently vacant and were most recently occupied by "The Greenwich Boutique" clothes shop.
