A development application has been lodged proposing to redevelop The Gap’s Old Coffee Club into a new tavern.

Plans for the refurbishment of The Gap’s Old Coffee Club involves the construction of a tavern with indoor and outdoor dining. The proposal intends to preserve the height and scale of the existing building and refurbish the vacant tenancy.

The idea of converting the Old Coffee Club into a new tavern is welcomed by some locals saying that such a place is needed in the suburb. However, some residents are concerned about parking and the tavern’s current location.

According to the proposed plans, the tavern will be utilising existing car park spaces of The Gap Village shopping centre. Access locations are retained to Waterworks Road and Glen Affric Street.

The Council had already carried out an initial review of the development application. The Council is now requiring the developer to address a couple of issues. One of the concerns raised is that the outdoor dining might interfere with pedestrian traffic as it is too close to the entrance and pathway to the shopping centre.
