Restaurant Plans Approved at Former Pumping Station

Sefton Council has today (July 7) granted Planning Permission for a change of use of a former pumping station in Southport to a restaurant.

The building, located on the Promenade by King’s Gardens, is situated in a prominent location at the southern end of the popular gardens and is within the promenade Conservation area.

The plans will convert the building into a restaurant and will bring back into use a historic building located in a key tourism area of Southport.  

Cllr Darren Veidman, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member Planning and Building Control, said: “We believe this development will really build upon the recent investment in the King’s Gardens area.

“The restaurant will inject vitality and vibrancy into the area while at the same time respecting the historical nature of the building and surrounding area. 

“This exciting development is a welcome investment in an important tourism area and Sefton Council looks forward to the project developing.”
