Outdoor Area Cafe Extension

Works will commence on Monday 16 October 2023, to extend the cafe and create an outdoor seating area.

The following works will be included as part of the development:

  • Extension of the café space to create an outdoor area with additional seating.
  • Café style external doors to access the area between the existing indoor and new outdoor areas.
  • Improvements to noise management.
  • Updated flooring.
  • Landscaping works.
  • Shading to provide protection from weather elements while outdoors.
