ANOTHER beach cafe could be coming to the seafront.

A proposal for the Big Beach Box cafe, drawn up by developer Boxpark and Hove-based Big Beach Cafe, has been submitted to Adur District Council.

Plans are to demolish the existing toilet block on Shoreham Beach Green and replace it with a slick three-floor seaside restaurant complete with community spaces.

Councillor Joss Loader, whose ward contains Shoreham Beach Green, said she supported the plans “in principle” but shared concerns with residents.

“The toilet block is in a terrible state and attracts antisocial behaviour so it needs replacing,” she said.

“But residents living around the area have concerns about noise and parking.

“Parking is a premium on the seafront so something will need to be sorted out.”

Cllr Loader, who also chairs the Shoreham Seafront Residents’ Association, said she welcomed the community spaces but wanted assurances no events would take place at night.

Residents have now been asked to comment on the cafe plans before the council debates it.

The deadline for comments is August 21.

Then the council planning committee will decide whether to approve the plans in the autumn.

News of the cafe plans comes as more extensions to the Shoreham Beach boardwalk have been planned.

Adur Council is working on phase four of the seaside boardwalk and hopes to spend £100,000 on a boardwalk from Ferry Road to Beach Green.

The project originally began in 2011.

Councillor in charge of environmental policy Emma Evans said the council would use “modern materials” to put together the footpath.

She said: “Shoreham Beach is an extremely special place with a unique habitat and amazing natural vistas.

“By using modern materials sympathetic to the area’s conservation status, the boardwalk ensures the protected vegetation is not damaged by people trampling over it.”

Meanwhile Councillor David Simmons, in charge of health in Adur, said he was “delighted” the project was moving into its fourth phase.

He said: “Since the first section was installed in 2011, the Shoreham Beach boardwalk has become a real attraction.”
