Under Wraps, under threat
UNDER Wraps café is under threat of closure after receiving a letter to remove a large section of outdoor seating from the State Government.
Owner Wayne Stapleton had applied for a permanent shade structure with the Cairns Regional Council which, according to the letter, spoke with the Department of Transport and Main Roads and rejected the application. TMR also asked council to have the footpath dining relocated in the “interests of pedestrian safety” because it was too close to the pedestrian crossing. Mr Stapleton met with a council officer on Friday to express his concern of losing the area, which would cost him 50 per cent of his trade.
