Queen’s Park Café Lease
The Superintendent of Hampstead Heath reported that he had met with the Café owner to discuss an improvement plan. He also advised that the new lease – with a renewal date in October 2015 – would be signed soon. An online comment/suggestion card survey of the Café would be introduced shortly to gather public feedback. In response to a member’s question, the Superintendent advised that internal improvements to the café were the responsibility of the licensee.
A member of the group added that there had been no improvement to the Café in three years, to which the Superintendent advised that he had been meeting with the Café owners on a monthly basis to develop performance indicators as well as an improvement plan.
A member of the group requested that the Café could be put out to tender when the lease renewal is due in October 2015 and the Superintendent confirmed that this was the intention.
