Plans to redevelop a hotel in Lowestoft’s South HAZ have been Approved
The Royal Court hotel dating back to 1988 has been left derelict for more than a decade and is now set to be repurposed to provide a vegan/vegetarian-friendly cafe on the ground floor and accommodate 15 residential flats which are said to be used by those in the off-shore and renewable sectors working in the area.
In the planning meeting councillor, Jenny Ceresa said: "Alongside the application's approval, I ask if the recommendation to retain the original windows on the building within the heritage action zone could be brought forward."
In the planning meeting Councillor Craig Rivett, East Suffolk Council's Deputy Leader said: "I would like to congratulate and thank the applicants for the changes made, that are a substantial change to the original application."
The planning committee unanimously voted for the application on Tuesday 10th November, subsequently planning consent has been granted for this redevelopment.
