The Inn Collection Group has been given the go-ahead for a 40-bedroom pub on Sunderland’s seafront.
Sunderland City Council’s planning committee has approved an application The Inn Collection Group that clears the way for a ‘pub with rooms’ to go ahead on land at Seaburn.
The Seaburn development will be designed with 40 bedrooms across three floors, with a bar and eatery area and will aim to the completed at the end of 2020.
Sean Donkin, managing director of The Inn Collection Group, said: “We’re delighted to have the green light to move forward with plans for what will be a fantastic addition to the seaside in Sunderland on a prime coastal spot.
“Seaburn will become a popular addition to our portfolio of pubs with rooms in the north’s best loved destinations including the Northumberland coast, Durham and the Lake District.”
The announcement follows a new strategic direction from The Inn Collection Group to develop a wholly freehold estate as it continues to roll out ‘buy and build’ growth plans which will see the group more than double its ten-strong portfolio of pubs with rooms by 2022.
The Alchemy-backed group will continue to seek out new development opportunities in the Lake District and Yorkshire as well as within its north east England heartland.
Its most recent new-build developments include The Commissioners Quay Inn, in Blyth and The Amble Inn in Amble, a £4m development which opened in January.
The group is opening a new 30-bedroom pub with rooms, The Ambleside Inn in Ambleside, Cumbria, later this month.
