Burgess Park Cafe, Burgess Park SE5

Southwark Council invites expressions of interest from catering businesses to provide a high quality catering service at Burgess Park, London SE5.

The £8million transformation of Burgess Park is nearing completion, with the park due to fully open in July 2012. Burgess Park café lies at the heart of the park and has become a vibrant central hub for visitors to the park and park users.

The café, which is located on the ground floor of the beautiful grade II listed North Alms House in Chumleigh Gardens is being offered as an enterprise opportunity under a concession contract to provide a high quality catering service to the local community, visitors to the park and users of the many facilities in and around the park.

The concession contract and lease will be for a period of five (5) years and this period may be extended for two (2) further periods of one year each at the sole discretion of Southwark Council.

The concession includes the lease of the entire two-storey property, with fully fitted and operational ground floor kitchen, internal and external seating areas and the use of the 1st floor space.

Also included within the concessions will be the opportunity to provide a catering service at the state of the art sports pavilion located within Burgess Park, which is regularly used by the local community and young people.

Southwark Council has made a commitment to the London Living Wage and therefore the terms of this commitment will apply to this concessions contract. Southwark Council believes that Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) will apply in relation to the award of this concessions contract.

Closing date for expression of interest: 13 July 2012
