A plan to create a new boutique aparthotel inside a former Grade-II listed former magistrates court and jail cells in Derby, has been given the go ahead by officials.
Walker&Walker, a Preston-based family company, is behind the new proposal, which will see 23 luxury apartments and a restaurant created as part of the new development in Ormskirk.
The company already operates No.10 Preston and Winckley Square Hotel in Preston city centre.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, a spokesperson said: “Our aparthotels offer our guests the best of both worlds, providing the luxury and space of a luxurious apartment with the service of a five star boutique hotel.
“We can’t give too much away at this time but some of the features offered in some of the apartments will include private garden space, floating mezzanine floors, hot tubs, copper roll top bathtubs and star gazing roof windows.”
A restaurant will be built in the former dock and seating booths will be set up in what was once the cell area.
Work will begin in August and is set to take 12 months to complete.
