Plans for a 24-bed boutique hotel on the former site of the Sherborne Hotel in Dorset have been published by developers.
The Quantum Group has formally submitted a planning application for the new complex which will include a hotel alongside care houses, care apartments and communal hub.
The previous building on the site was demolished in January this year after occupying businesses began developing financial problems as far back as 2006.
The Quantum Group stated that it would look to begin construction in June 2017 if plans go ahead, with the hotel opening for business in 2019.
The group already has a large portfolio of similar developments, including a similar mix of hotel and residential accommodation in Bournemouth which was approved in 2014, SomersetLive reported.
