A plan to build a new boutique hotel in London’s Waterloo has been given the green light by local councillors.
The proposal was discussed at Lambeth Council’s Planning Committee meeting that took place on Tuesday night and officially given the go ahead for work to begin.
The new hotel would be located in Lower Marsh, a short walk from Waterloo, and consist of 40 bedrooms plus a restaurant and bar.
The site is made up of four Victorian terrace properties, which currently provide retail and residential space as well as accommodation in the form of Steve’s Bed and Breakfast.
The approved scheme will be designed by architects Kyson and will see a partial demolition and redevelopment of the site to incorporate the same mix of uses, plus the addition of the new boutique hotel.
An earlier application to completely demolish and redevelop the site as a boutique hotel was withdrawn earlier this year in response to council officer concerns.
Now with planning permission secured, it is thought work on the new development will start in the new year.
