BEC is working with Sellafield Ltd to regenerate the former Bus Station and Offices at Bransty Row, Whitehaven into a unique destination to support digital inclusion and innovation in Cumbria and are seeking a proven delivery partner to provide business support and enablement services and promote digital inclusion in the county, strengthening the existing innovation ecosystem in Cumbria.
The former Offices and first floor of the former Bus Station are being transformed into an inspiring business environment made up private offices, meeting and events space, co-working areas and a maker space for developing prototypes – everything you need to develop your idea.
The ground floor of the former Bus Station becomes ‘The Peddlar’, a stunning restaurant serving locally sourced food and beverages, being delivered in partnership with Osprey Group.
‘The Peddlar’ plans to host live music on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 8pm until midnight with recorded music on Mondays to Wednesdays 9am until 11:30pm, on Thursdays and Sundays from 9am until 12:30am, and on Fridays and Saturdays from 9am until as late as 1am.
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 country. Fresh, locally sourced, sustainable foods will become the foundation of the menus.”
Michael Pemberton, chief executive of BEC, explained: “The development revives neglected places. Craig Lowery and the ream 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.”
