Martin Walsh Architectural (MWA), the Dewsbury based family-owned Architects, has been awarded the design contract for a new lakeside cafe development in Mirfield.

The proposed cafe, which overlooks a fishing lake and is just off Sands Lane, will also include an education classroom, a picnic and play area, and a car park for 16 vehicles.

Working with Robert Halstead Planning Consultants and on behalf of the Chappelow family, MWA gained planning approval from Kirklees Council for the proposed 1,184ft sq development.

Marcus Walsh, director of Martin Walsh Architectural, said: “We’re delighted to have been given the go ahead on this exciting project after an extensive planning application.

“The proposed lakeside cafe will offer perfect scenic views of the fishing lake and will become a great spot for all the family.”

Due to the proximity to a neighbouring fishing lake, permission follows an extensive planning application process which included an ecological survey.

As part of the planning criteria, the development will also include a ‘refugia’ which will be built around the site of the cafe.

It is expected that work on the development will begin in October 2018.
