MIDDLE Eastern food could be on the menu at a proposed snack bar at a popular coastal beauty spot.

Proposals submitted to East Lothian Council request permission for a snack bar at the Linkfield car park of John Muir Country Park.

Drawings show the size of the portable food vendor, with details included about what could be on the menu at the car park, to the west of West Barns.

The mobile snack bar would trade 8.30am-7.30pm Tuesdays to Sundays throughout March to October.

Opening hours would be reduced for the remainder of the year.

Markos Akgun’s plans suggest it would be open on the same days but close at 4.30pm.

A planning statement included with the proposals notes what could be on offer: “Drinks to be sold: Italian coffee, selection of teas, soft drinks and juices. Food to be sold: soup, hot and cold sandwiches and rolls, burgers, hot dogs, vegetarian equivalents and Middle East-inspired specials.”

A spokeswoman for East Lothian Council confirmed that anyone looking to have a snack bar on the site would pay a lease for “exclusive use of an agreed area for their pitch”.

She said: “These pitches were all marketed for offers over £1,500 p.a.”

There’s already a large children’s play area located at the busy car park.

East Lothian Council highlights that “around 400 species of plant” have been found in the park, while birds and a variety of insects can also be found there.

The local authority has come under fire after advertising a catering pitch at Levenhall Links West in Musselburgh.

The lagoons at the nature attraction are part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
