CAFE plans for a dilapidated toilet block have been delayed.

The Boxpark scheme for Shoreham’s Beach Green is now expected to open in spring or summer next year, rather than this summer as originally envisaged.

Planning permission for the scheme, which will consist of a split level café-restaurant with a roof terrace, public toilets and community space for up to 90 people, was approved in October, despite almost 300 objections.

Matthew McMillan, head of development at Boxpark, said the team had been working hard on moving the plans forward.

“Due to a lengthier than anticipated planning process, we have had to delay the opening of the scheme until spring/summer 2021,” he said.

“We have been in dialogue with the council and local councillors through this process. We’re confident that our plans will transform this site into a vibrant landmark destination.”
