Plans for a major development of a key town centre site in Gainsborough – including a brand new hotel, have been unanimously approved by Councillors.
Dixon Dawson Chartered Architects were appointed by Dransfield Properties Limited to transform the Market Street, Market Place, Church Street and North Street area of the town by designing a stunning new 56 room Travelodge hotel on the site of the former Sun Inn as well as wider regeneration schemes to refurbish town centre shop front, creating an Independent Quarter in the town along with improvements to the existing Roseway Car Park.
The plans were approved by West Lindsey District Council’s Planning Committee at their meeting on Wednesday 31 May 2017. Work can start on the development site once approval for the demolition has been confirmed by the Secretary of State.
The first phase of work will deliver the new hotel and a Ponti’s Italian Kitchen restaurant on the ground floor including an attractive alfresco dining area and water feature inspired by Paley Park in New York.
The hotel and restaurant will be housed in a stunning Edwardian style building with entrances from Market Street and the Roseway Car Park.
Gavin Ward (Partner) said “once again, we are delighted to be working closely with Dransfield properties Limited so to transform a run down and tired area within a Market Town. The design of the hotel and revitalised shop units will be a great asset to the existing town centre”
