Heliport building could become a restaurant
Plans to turn a heliport building into a restaurant have been submitted to the Development Applications Board for approval.
If approved, the proposal would turn the building, located to the south of the Causeway roundabout on the road opposite LF Wade International Airport, into a restaurant for travellers and members of the public.
According to the plans by Butterworth Associates, the building’s main garage would be adapted into the main dining area, while a rear garage would become the kitchen.
Also marked in the plans is a grassy area intended for a mini-putt course.
A letter from Airport General Manager Aaron Adderley included in the application said the application from Thomas United Company, came in response to a request for proposal.
Mr Adderly wrote: “Such a business would provide an alternative restaurant/food outlet to the general public as well as airport users, including passengers and airport staff.
“Situated along the shoreline at the northern end of the Causeway, the proposed eatery will provide stunning vistas of the Castle Harbour, creating an enticing option for our visitor and residents alike.”
The application has been advertised in the Official Gazette, and is viewable at the Department of Planning offices.
