This is a proposal for the partially-built building on Lancing Beach. It is on the site of the Mermaid Cafe and has sat in it’s current state for the past four years. We propose to transform this eyesore into a sustainable, vibrant and key attraction to Lancing Beach. The ground floor will contain a beach cafe and water sports centre. The cafe will cater to visitors throughout the year and provide a space available for hire; this will be ideal for community use and events with an excellent view of the beach. The water sports centre will take advantage of Lancing’s growing reputation as a destination for kite surfing, providing access to this and other water sports for locals and visitors alike.
