Wagamama is planning to open a new restaurant in Essex.
The popular Japanese chain already has four restaurants in the county – and now there are plans for a fifth.
A premises licence application has been put up at Braintree’s Freeport at the old Las Iguanas site.
The restaurant closed last year and Wagamama has applied to take over the site.
Wagamama already has restaurants at Lakeside in Thurrock, Colchester, Chelmsford, and Basildon.
The new licence application is at Restaurant 7 on Charter Way in Braintree.
The proposed activities in the licence includes selling alcohol on and off premises between 10am and midnight, Monday to Sunday.
It’s also been proposed that there will be “late night refreshment” indoors and outdoors between 11pm and midnight, Monday to Sunday.
Wagamama Limited is intending to open from 8am to half past midnight every day of the week.
Anyone wishing to make a representation about the application should write to The Licensing Authority, Braintree District Council, Causeway House, Bocking End, Braintree, Essex, CM7 9HB.
The consultation end date is on December 20.
