Plans have been submitted to convert space allocated for shops and office use into a hotel at the base of a Deptford housing block.
Plans were previously approved in 2012 but lapsed. This new plan increases rooms by 22 to a total of 123 windowless rooms. Documents state:
“This permission expired on 30th March 2015, owing to circulation
concerns and floor plate inefficiencies, the internal layout of the hotel has been developed from that previously proposed. This has resulted in guest rooms moving closer to existing external facades. The revised scheme seeks to include more guest rooms with an additional 22 guest rooms changing the room count to 123 windowless guest rooms.”
The hotel is car free but as anyone who knows the adjacent Crossfields estate and Creekside will know, parking is already strained.
