Bournemouth Harry Ramsden plans changes to outdoor food court
AUTHORIZATION is requested for a multitude of changes to the outdoor dining areas of the Harry Ramsden seafront restaurant in Bournemouth.
The chain asked the BCP Council to carry out a series of works on the Undercliff Drive building, including improvements to its terrace.
He said the project would help him meet the number of clients he expects this summer and “meet the current climate of needs.”
The app offers a series of modifications and repairs to the restaurant building, mainly focused on improving the capacity of its upper terrace and areas at beach level.
His plans include a new weather barrier and patio access point, as well as new awnings and an enclosed seating area.
Proposals for the lower ground floor include closing the arches to provide more seating and expanding the ice cream stand.
“The overall work will improve the appearance of the property and make it more attractive to customers and is necessary to meet the current climate of customer needs and maintain those standards,” said a statement submitted with the request.
“The proposal will be consistent with the character of the property and will also incorporate the historical values and traditions of Harry Ramsden.”
This is the latest application from a seaside restaurant seeking to expand its outdoor offering in anticipation of an influx of visitors to the region expected this summer.
“Due to the number of customers expected over the coming year and the demand for a better customer experience, it was estimated that the terrace will be improved and will allow better access to the restaurant,” the statement added.
The request, which was submitted by Harry Ramsden’s parent company, Deep Blue Restaurants, will be reviewed by BCP Council planning officers over the coming weeks.
