However, the application does not include any car parking proposals.

John Bridge, who is the architect behind the project said: “We are restoring the historic front Grade II Listed Front Elevation, and ensuring that we feature the wonderful crescent bay to the first floor.

“It’s a personal one for me, as my father used to play their in a Rock Band (Rob Bridge – Touch) in the 1990’s.

“The Developer YsF Developments is really keen to make the project work economically in providing design led residential inner city living space.”

The former hotel is currently a Grade-II listed building.

It is currently vacant but the upper floors were previously used as accommodation.
