Exciting Proposals for a new Swiss Tearooms building

Amber Valley Borough Council’s Cabinet will be asked on 21 March 2018, to consider proposals, which if approved, will commit funding for the construction of a new Swiss Tearooms Building within Belper River Gardens.

The proposal has been developed following an independent study commissioned by the Council, which looked at whether a new Swiss Tearooms would be financially viable and to what scale a new building should be. The proposal reflects the findings of the study, which has recommended a simpler design than earlier proposals, to cater for the needs of both parks users and local residents.

If approved, it is estimated that the new building will cost up to £290,000 to design and build, and the Council would be looking to work in partnership with the Belper Community Enterprise, which has been fundraising for a replacement Swiss Tearooms and Belper Town Council, which previously committed up to £100,000 towards the project.

A Council spokesperson said: “This proposal if approved, will ensure that the funding is in place to build a new Swiss Tearooms. Following approval, the next stages will be to commission a design, obtain planning permission and identify an Operator to run the facility, so that it can be built as soon as possible for residents and visitors to start enjoying.”
