Plans to transform a former hotel into a new boutique in Cornwall have been submitted to the local council as part of a wider regeneration scheme.
The ‘neglected’ site is currently home to the former Pendower Beach House Hotel, which closed in 2007 after 23 years under the same ownership.
Now a proposal has been put forward to create a new 14-bedroom boutique hotel and restaurant at the site as part of a regeneration scheme in the Cornish town.
Following a public consultation, Gary Wyatt from Koho Architects, spearheading the new development, said there had been ‘significant changes’ made to the original plan in response to local feedback.
Also part of the scheme are 25 residential apartments, landscaping, environmental and public amenity improvements, alongside stabilisation of the existing access road to the beach, future-proofing it against coastal erosion.
Gary Wyatt, of Koha Architects, said: “We believe the result is an exciting scheme which strikes the right balance in regenerating this brownfield site in a way which enhances its setting and achieves many environmental, ecological, access and other physical improvements which will benefit visitors and the local community.
“The site deserves the highest level of attention, given the multiple designations that exist upon it.
“We are committed as a development team to a proposal of the highest quality which will enhance this unique setting which has become sadly neglected.”
