A LANDMARK eatery outside Salisbury could soon boast a new kiosk, outside seating area and an awning.
The Thyme & Tides deli and restaurant, on the A30 London Road at Firsdown, has submitted a planning application to Wiltshire Council for various changes to the site.
Part of the venue’s large car park would be converted to an outside dining area, including the kiosk, awning and seating.
Awning blinds would also be installed on the main building, formerly The Haven, the plan says.
“The site has recently been purchased by the owners of Thyme & Tide Deli in Stockbridge (Hampshire),” the application said.
“They are proposing to create an outside eating area on the land to the end of the existing car park, and also propose to install awning blinds to the front elevation of the existing restaurant building.”
The outside seating area would feature a ‘timber-clad’ kiosk serving tea, coffee and light snacks, with timber decking covered by the awning providing a seating area.
It would be available between May and September, the plan said, and only in the daytime.
Meanwhile, plans for the main building are also outlined.
“To protect users of the restaurant from direct sunlight, it is proposed to install new awning blinds to the front elevation of the building,” the application said.
The blinds would be fully retractable, it added, as well as hedging and fencing installed to screen the eating area from the A30 and surrounds.
People can comment on the application, reference PL/2022/02789, at www.wiltshire.gov.uk until March 28.
