It would sell homemade food in a dining area directly overlooking the seafront, as well as offering takeaway food.

The plans also include a decked seating area on the beach side of the building, which provides ramped access to the beach.

The documents say: “The application clearly supports the council’s aspirations to bring the existing building back to use and to broaden the Weston food and drink experience.

“The application is for the sensitive and respectful refurbishment of the existing building, bringing back into beneficial use an important seafront building that forms part of the Beach Lawns Conservation Area.

“The proposals illustrated in this statement retain the scale, form and character of the existing building whilst at the same time introducing contemporary elements that will enhance the building and give it a new lease of life.”
