The Shakespeare Hotel in Stratford upon Avon could expand with 19 new bedrooms if a new development plan is given the green light.
The hotel, which is operated by Mercure, has submitted a proposal to Stratford District Council to create a new extension to provide 19 new bedrooms across the first and second floors at the Chapel Street venue.
If given the go ahead, the bedroom count at the four-star hotel would be expanded to 89.
In 2016, the owner mulled the idea of building 30 new bedrooms at the property but concerns were raised surrounding infill development of the plot.
The plan has now been scaled back as a result.
The application states: “Following recent investment in refurbishment of the original hotel building and public areas, this application for planning permission and listed building consent represents the next phase in the hotel owner’s aspirations to meet changing business needs and rejuvenate the rear of the hotel.”
A decision on the application is expected to be made towards the end of May.
