Hamlyn House/Premier Inn


The application to convert Hamlyn House to a Premier Inn is going to the planning committee in November 2013. After objections to the previous scheme it has been amended, with improved new cladding and removal of the bridge connecting it to its neighbouring building, Hill House. A study commissioned by the owners, Lazari Investments, confirmed that this was a key contributor to wind blight in the area. The weeping birch at the front of the building will be cut down, but Premier Inn promise that several new trees will be planted in the area.
