Is subject to call in?: No


To provide a seating area on the top of the Lime Kiln at Larkstone Watersports and a bridge link to the Café Balcony to increase occupancy numbers and improve viability.

Reasons for the decision:

Obtaining three price quotes is not appropriate.
Pearce Construction were the main contractor for the Larkstone Watersport Hub which was completed in July 2023, the link to the Lime Kiln is the next phase of works to complete the overall project. We have funding in place from the Rural Prosperity Fund and Funds need to be committed by March 2024. The café needs this space to be ready for occupation before this years season starts, by Easter if possible. Pearce have the contact with the suppliers from the original project which is necessary to match this element. The project would be managed by the same team as the original project. This will make the project deliverable in the timeframes and budget required.
