New restaurant and shopping complex for Sunderland seafront given go ahead by city council

Sunderland City Council’s planning and highways committee have approved a new architectural plan to enhance the seafront with a new two-storey multipurpose building.

The construction will house shops, a take-away and a restaurant. According to councillor Melville Speding, thanks to the support received from the Seafront Traders Association the project has already received a lot of interest from investors.

This is phase two of the ongoing Pier Point development project, and the new building will be situated on Marine Walk.

Some Roker residents are objecting to the project claiming it will take away too much of the open space surrounding the sea area.

Parking spots and road safety have also been listed as a concern.

Councillor Speding said: “The objective is to regenerate and create jobs and we are being reasonably successful.”

Up to now £750,000 have been invested into the project and dozens of jobs have are being created.
