Work has started on preparing the site where the new steampunk-inspired tearooms will be built at Oamaru’s Friendly Bay.
Waitaki District Council corporate services group manager Carolyn Carter said the tearooms are being built by a private developer and will be located at the same historic site as the kiosk of the early 1900s.
“Council owns the land, which was commercially leased to the developer in 2007 and plans for building tearooms at the site were finalised following approval from Council,” she said.
“This approval process included the tearooms gaining a resource consent in 2010, and discussion and approval of designs through Council’s Harbour Sub-Committee.”
