Hotel plans ‘back on the table’08th June 2012
A 50-bedroom hotel will be built on the site of a former public house if developers get their way.
The Golden Cross company of Hayes is bidding to knock down the former pub of the same name in Botwell Lane – now an Indian restaurant called Apni Rasoi – and erect a three-storey hotel complete with basement car parking in its place.
The application is a renewal as Hillingdon Council granted approval for the scheme back in 2009 but work has not yet begun and the permission expires after the three-year limit in July.
According to Anil Khosla, the planning consultant appointed by the owners of the site, funding problems had delayed the work, but they are now in a position to revisit the scheme.
In 2006 the council refused part conversion of the pub into a hotel with 33 rooms, but the plans were approved on appeal.
Drinkers were generally in support of the scheme to give the pub a lifeline, yet nearby residents complained that the development would add to congestion in the area.
