Exciting new Belper Tearooms design unveiled

Amber Valley Borough Council has released images of the replacement Swiss Tearooms building, planned for Belper River Gardens.

The new design reflects the heritage of the original building, whilst offering modern high-quality facilities within. It also features internal seating for over 40 customers and a large veranda with additional seating, public toilets that can be used by visitors to the park, and a serving hatch facing the playground for those who prefer their refreshments on the go.

The scheme is fully funded, with £320,000 provided by Amber Valley Borough Council and a further £100,000 by Belper Town Council. The next stage will be to submit a planning application, with the intention of beginning construction this summer.

The council is also keen to appoint an experienced commercial operator to run the new tearooms building and anyone wishing to express an interest can contact the council at enquiry@ambervalley.gov.uk.

Councillor Chris Short, cabinet member for the environment commented: “It is with tremendous pleasure that I’m able to release the proposed design of the replacement Swiss Tearooms, which I’m sure everyone will agree, represents a fitting tribute to the original building. We also believe this new facility will serve both existing and new visitors to Belper River Gardens for decades to come. I personally cannot wait for the building to be opened, so I can go and buy my lunch and sit in a warm comfortable environment, whilst taking in the stunning views.”
