APPLICANTS will be hoping their Caernarfon airport café plans will lift off after consideration by Gwynedd council

Proposals for a glazed extension to a café seating area and the development of a retractable fabric roof, will be considered by Cyngor Gwynedd.

The council’s planning committee has received a full application for the Dinas Dinlle airport site.

The application has been  made by Tony Reynolds of Shrewsbury-based Loca Shading Designs Ltd and was made through Stourbridge PLTS company agent Peter Lee .

The planning application, in progress, was received on  March 3 and expires on  May 31, 2023.

The development would concern the café  area already within the airport building.

The objective, the plans state, is “…to erect an aluminium structure with a retractable fabric canopy over part of the terrace to the rear of the property.

“This will provide more comfortable, all-weather seating facilities

to enhance the established café business.”

The proposed structure at the airport would see the retractable canopy  cover an outside seating area measuring 50sqm.

The plans add the aim is “to erect a retractable canopy structure over part of the existing patio, with full-height vertical glazing along the side elevation, to create a light and airy all-weather seating area.”

According to the applicants, the scheme would see a resulting lounge space  which will include heating and lighting.

This, the proposals say, is in order to “create a relaxing environment to be used as an overflow seating area on certain days.

“At other times, as now, the space will remain vacant.”

The planning application design statement adds:

“The canopy structure would feature an electrically operated acrylic awning supported on a powder-coated aluminium frame” and with the canopy  retracting in “a concertina fashion.”

Illumination would be provided by integral LED downlights, which would be set into the fabric support bars.

“LEDs would be in fixed positions ensuring that the light shines downwards only, and their brightness can be adjusted during installation in cases where there is a risk of light pollution causing a nuisance to other properties.

“The north elevation will feature full-height sliding windows, whilst the two side elevations, east and west, will be fixed glazing.”

Primary access to the proposed structure would be made through the café area.

Sliding glass doors to the north elevation will also enable access to the remaining garden and patio area.

“There will also be level flooring throughout and all-ability access will remain as per the current conditions.” The proposals state.
