Meeting of potential Bognor restaurant operators

A MEETING took place for an initial assessment of the potential operators of a new Bognor Regis restaurant.

A project group of representatives from Arun District Council and its consultants Colliers International got together to look at the ideas put forward to design, build and run the eaterie in Hotham Park.

A council spokeswoman said: “Arun has received a number of expressions of interest from businesses wanting to become a part of the new restaurant venture for Hotham Park.”

The meeting yesterday was expected to decide how to proceed and turn the best of the ideas into reality.

Arun wants to see the restaurant bring a new dining experience to the highly-rated park. It has granted outline planning permission to establish the principle of the outlet for 40 diners inside and 30 outside.

It is expected the restaurant will offer family-style meals in daytime and fine dining in the evenings.

But it will be up to the operator chosen by the council to decide the details of the operation.
