Plan for Fundraising Hornsea Boathouse Cafe Approved

Hornsea is to get a new café that will raise funds for the town's volunteer rescue service.

Permission has been granted for a rooftop café on Hornsea's boat house.

Local councillor - John Whittle - says it will help to fund the Hornsea Rescue Service.

Plans for the cafe on the compound on Hornsea’s South Promenade were unanimously approved by East Riding Council’s Eastern Area Planning Sub-Committee yesterday (Monday, April 8).

Cllr Barbara Jefferson, of North Holderness ward which covers Hornsea, said the cafe would be a magnificent additional to the building and the area.

The approved plans stated the cafe would have seats for between 30 and 40 people including tourists who would be able to enjoy views of the sea from the roof.

Existing metal handrails around the edge of the roof will be replaced by higher, glazed balustrade to improve safety and provide uninterrupted views of the sea.

Councillors heard money raised at the cafe would go towards supporting Hornsea Rescue, an independent lifeboat charity based in the compound.

A total of 32 comments were lodged in support of the application which also has the backing of Hornsea Town Council.

Councillor Denis Healy thinks it will turn the boathouse into a key destination on the towns south promenade
