Proposed designs of the new Wish Tower restaurant will go on public display at the Western View café this week.
Eastbourne Borough Council and architects Levitt Bernstein have produced information boards which will be on view at the seafront café for four weeks. People will be able to have their say on the designs by sending their comments to a dedicated email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Feedback will be taken into consideration ahead of a planning application being submitted in June, with a decision expected in September.
The scheme will create a high quality restaurant in an iconic building that maximises the prominent location and seats over 100 people.
Councillor David Tutt, Leader of Eastbourne Borough Council, said: “We hope people will come and have a look at the exciting designs. They have been drawn up very much in mind that this will be a flagship development serving world class food.”
Three potential restaurateurs have been shortlisted and negotiations are now taking place to determine their best and final offers. A preferred bidder will be announced next month.
The successful bidder will also play a key role in the final design of the new eatery.
Cllr Tutt added: “Throughout the application process, high regard has been given to the existing seafront offer so that the preferred operator brings a fresh and new offer to the town that will attract residents and visitor to the superb new venue.”
The new restaurant is also designed to complement the planned war memorial and peace garden at the Wish Tower for those from Eastbourne who were killed in the Second World War.
