Plans for a new £4m hotel in Amble in Northumberland have been given the go ahead, with the hope that the new property will help to ‘revitalise’ the town.
The new hotel and restaurant proposal has been put together by regeneration company Arch, which is wholly owned by the county council, and represents an investment of up to £4m.
The plan is for a new 30-bedroom hotel to be built on an undeveloped site within Coquet Enterprise Park, plus an 150-cover restaurant and bar area with outdoor space.
The proposed development is part of a wider plan to enhance Coquet Enterprise Park and build on the momentum of recent economic development at the harbour.
It is hoped that the hotel will contribute to the town’s tourism offer while Arch also says that the hotel will act as a catalyst for wider regeneration of the enterprise park.
