Hotel redevelopment set for green light

Wed 12 December 2012, 4:05 pm

Proposals to redevelop the Park Royal Hotel pub on Hangar Green are being recommended for approval.

Members of Ealing Council’s planning committee will next week give their decision on the plans for the building, which would see it expanded to provide a 152-bedroom hotel with a bar, restaurant, and basement parking.

The work would involve demolition of part of the current structure, which is locally listed because of its architectural signfificance, but would also see the addition of an extra storey to its front, a five-storey extension to its rear, and a four-storey extension to its western side.

A report by planning officers said that despite some 10 objections from neighbouring residents, Keypoint Guernsey’s proposals are in line with local, regional, and national planning guidelines. It concluded that the development would “successfully incorporate” the locally listed Park Royal Hotel building into the design of the new scheme.

It said: “The development would sit comfortably within the Hanger Green frontage and the setting of the statutorily listed Park Royal Station, and would result in the redevelopment of an under-utilised brownfield site which due to its condition currently detracts from the character and appearance of the Hanger Hill Estate conservation area.”

Ealing’s planning committee meets on 19 December.
