A DEVONPORT man seeking to open a cafe in a heritage-listed building on the Mersey foreshore says that restoring the trans-Mersey ferry service would aid his plans.
Leigh Murphy has applied for a cafe liquor licence for the eatery that he wants to open in the old harbour master’s office.
Mr Murphy said a development application was lodged and approved by the Devonport City Council and the Heritage Council of Tasmania.
Mr Murphy said as well as the cafe, his future plans would include a 50-bike cycle rack on the foreshore, for people to visit places of interest like the Bass Strait Maritime Museum, Tiagarra and Don River Railway.
