Sanctuary Cafe – new proposals

We are really pleased to have helped the award-winning Lymm Sanctuary Café obtain planning permission for the refurbishment, part rebuild, and extension of their existing premises.

The existing building is part of a 1960’s extension to the Lymm United Reformed Church, and has been in need of upgrading for a number of years. As a much-used resource within the community, the proposals provide a sustainable and improved base for the café and its associated offerings.

The proposal seeks to strike a balance between making use of an existing structure and providing an attractive modern café. By implementing these changes, the facility will achieve its full potential and become better adapted to the modern day-to-day functioning of the space as both a café and community hub. Improved layout, increased storage, and enhanced thermal efficiency will significantly improve staff and customer’s daily experience of the building. Considered accessibility, improved function and facilities result in a more attractive appearance and connectivity with the wider area.
