Approval for London City airport hotel will regenerate disused pub site, Newham

We are delighted with the result of LB Newham’s recent Planning Committee meeting, which found a unanimous approval for a proposed four storey, 31-bed hotel located less than 5 minutes walk from the London City Airport Terminal building. Plainview Planning provided full planning consultancy services on the project.

The proposed scheme sought the change of use, extension and alterations to a dilapidated public house which had stood vacant for over a decade. We undertook extensive pre-app discussions with planning officers which fed into the final scheme, which represents a high quality and positive development for the area.

The  hotel will meet the demands of the short stay business market that utilises the airport and the change of use will create at least 17 jobs for the area.

Great care was shown in the design stage to ensure it enhanced the local area and no negative impact would be felt on the amenities of nearby residents.

This positive and demonstrably sustainable scheme will help to diversify the hotel offer in the London City Airport area and help to revitalise a vacant and dilapidated site.
