A designer clothes shop could be the latest addition to Harrogate's historic James Street.

Seasalt Cornwall has submitted a planning application to bring their popular clothes shop to Harrogate on the former Santander bank site.

The shop, which specialises in women’s clothing, accessories and footwear, men's accessories and Cornish homewear, was originally launched in Penzance in 1981.

Since then, the shop has opened up branches in Falmouth, St Ives, Bath, Exeter and, most recently, Shrewsbury, Hereford, Chester and Morpeth.

The shop describes itself as a Cornish fashion company, selling women’s clothing, footwear and accessories inspired by the creative and maritime heritage of Cornwall.

In their Design and Access Statement, the company are hoping to 'install a new shop front in a style that draws on the design of an historic James Street shop front.'

The statement read: "The new shop front will be decorated to represent the Seasalt brand identity whilst remaining sympathetic to the surrounding units.

"The decoration and branding proposal will add an exciting new aspect to the street landscape whilst complimenting and reflecting the neighbouring units.

"The proposal will improve the access to the building, and refresh the appearance of the unit with the installation of a new shop front inspired by the traditional shop fronts of James Street, whilst remaining sensitive to the context of the street and neighbouring retail units."
