A wine bar expansion and a new home for people with learning disabilities are among designs set to be approved by Trafford council bosses.
An application to transform a former home into a new care facility in Sale, which will cater for up to six people and operate 24-hours a day, has been tabled.
Care organisation Stockdales, which supports children and adults with complex needs, wants to open the new home.
Meanwhile, in Altrincham, the owners of House Restaurant and Bar are seeking permission to expand their business upstairs.
If approved, diners will be able to play pinball machines, pool, and watch films.
A new mezzanine floor with extra seating is also planned.
Members of the authority’s planning committee are due to discuss the applications on Thursday.
Plans for six-bed care home to support people with learning difficulties tabled
A new facility that will provide round-the-clock care for people with learning difficulties has the backing of town hall bosses.
Plans include transforming the empty property at 42 Fownhope Avenue, Sale, into a new care home for up to six people.
Two-storey side and rear extensions, a lift and extra parking spaces are also planned.
However, not everyone is in favour of the development and the council has received 27 objection letters.

Residents say the extension would result in the plot being overdeveloped, which would undermine the ‘tranquillity’ of the area.
Others are concerned about added traffic.
The authority also received seven letters of support from people who say the facility will support the borough’s most vulnerable residents.
In addition, they say the building would be ‘well maintained’ and would not impact the neighbours.
Meanwhile, council bosses have recommended the application be approved.
