Tel: 01900 603395
Fantastic news from our owners Osprey Management Group that they’ve secured agreement to operate a fabulous new venue based in Whitehaven’s iconic former bus station. There’ll be a 100 seater cafe/bar on the ground floor to be named The Peddler and office space above.
‘Craig Lowery, director of operations at Osprey, said: “We envisage The Peddler to be a unique proposition to the local area.
“It will showcase the amazing artisan food and drink products available in the county. Fresh, locally sourced, sustainable foods will become the foundation of the menus.”
BEC’s head of property and development, Rob Miller added: “Food innovation will be key at the Bus Station, and it will also act as a hothouse for tech, digital, media, and creative start-ups.”
Michael Pemberton, chief executive of BEC, said: “The development revives neglected places.
“Craig Lowery and the team at Osprey have taken a similar approach to developments, choosing places that need to be revitalised and returned to the communities that house them, providing leisure spaces for society to thrive and supporting employment opportunities on the coast of Cumbria.”
Sellafield Ltd is investing £2.6m into the bus station project and the North Shore scheme is led by BEC, with the help of partners including Copeland Borough Council and Whitehaven Harbour Commissioners.
