A TEMPORARY cafe at the Wish Tower has been given the go-ahead.

Town planners last night approved plans to put an eatery on the site of the former Wish Tower Restaurant Sun lounge with indoor and outdoor seating for up to 60 people.

It will have views out across the Western Lawns to Beachy Head.

The design of the new cafe is a marked improvement on previous plans put forward by the council which were pod style structures and likened to the homes of TV favourites Teletubbies.

The new cafe will be a temporary replacement for the Wish Tower Restaurant, which has now been knocked down, and could be in place for up to two years while the council waits for a third party to come forward with plans to revamp the site.
