New hotel to be built at Derry listed building 19.05.16

DERRY is to get another new boutique hotel after councillors approved plans for a well-known listed building in the city centre.
Members of Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Planning Committee have approved full planning permission and listed building consent for a new 24-bedroom boutique hotel.
The application is for buildings at 1-4 Shipquay Place and 7-17 Foyle Street, but not including the corner buildings of the Gainsborough Bar or the former Madden’s tobacconist buildings.
The proposal also includes a bar/restaurant area and an Italian restaurant. As part of the overall proposal there were two applications, one for the full application and one for the listed building consent.
No objections were received in relation to the application submitted on behalf of Elm Village Company Limited, 7 Northland Road, Derry and ASI Architects.
Council’s chief executive John Kelpie said that Council in its new role as local planning authority was "pleased to play its part in the delivery of new infrastructural tourism developments that will serve the tourism and cultural offering of the city and district".
He said: “This proposal is an important development that will enhance regenerate a listed building that forms part of a key cluster of landmark buildings and spaces that are significant to the special built heritage in our town centre.”
