Approved: Conversion of Hotel into Self Contained Flats

Design & Development Associates have recently secured planning consent in conjunction with HFL Planning for the conversion of the Pinedale Hotel into self contained flats.

The client approached us through a recommendation and asked if we could undertake a measured survey of the hotel and undertake a design for self contained units.

We undertook the survey and started working on the design. The key aspect is to be sympathetic to the characteristics of the property and preserve its character, while internally ensuring high quality living accommodation.

The application was submitted by HFL Planning and was subsequently approved. This is a great consent as the conversion from hotels to residential is notoriously difficult to argue due to  the loss of tourism. A mix of good design and a strong planning argument presented a high quality planning submission to the Borough, for which they could only approve.
