Closing date for comments: Sun 13 Aug 2023
Determination date: Fri 01 Sep 2023
The proposed new entrance is a positive improvement to the street frontage and a more suitable and accessible entrance for this prominent hotel. The proposals will retain some ground level activity along Princes Street.
The proposed restaurant and proposed improvements to the meuse lane are also positive.
The approved roof extension will rationalise the rather negative, unattractive and jumbled aesthetic of the current roofscape.
However, more information on access and servicing would have been welcome.
