  18. "We won't give up on our plans" say shipping container cafe backers

    David Burns

    BBC Radio Humberside

    The people who wanted to bring a pop-up cafe in a shipping container along Hull Marina have told me this morning that they won't give up on their plans. 

    Here's what one similar to the proposed idea looks like:  

    Bar made from a shipping container

    Councillors voted unanimously yesterday to uphold recommendations to refuse the application.

    They say the location, scale and detail of the container fails to preserve the appearance of the area.

    The people behind the plans say they'll resubmit them:

    Quote Message: Well go around it, we'll speak to a couple of advisers. We'll go back to the design team as well. We've got our own interest in the area, we have a really successful restaurant there. We're not going to put anything there that's an eyesore or bring anything other than a great new vibe." from Caroline Smith Manager Al Porto
