Plans to build a 24 bedroom hotel on land next to a Wrexham pub could be given the go ahead next week.
Members of Wrexham Council’s planning committee will next week consider the plans for the land on the eastern side of The Plas Coch on the Plas Coch Retail Park.
Proposals for the development were submitted to Wrexham Council in May 2018, with the applicants stating that it would create 10 full and part time roles.
The application itself has been described as being part of a “nationwide development programme’ by Marstons, which is “looking to provide high quality and best value overnight accommodation on selected sites across their estate”.
Details submitted at the time, stated: “These facilities will be provided within small scale lodges and will cater for the modern day traveller, be they on business or at leisure, as individuals or as a group or family.”
This would include a mixture of rooms, including family, double and twin bedrooms.
A breakfast service for guests would be provided in The Plas Coch, along with a reception service for those checking into the lodge.
As part of the plans there would also be a reconfiguration of the car parking facilities, which would increase from its current provision of 80 spaces to 95 to cater for the extra demand.
Now the plans have been recommended for approval by the head of environment and planning at Wrexham Council, who in a report due before councillors next week, says that: “The building would therefore be in keeping with the existing built development and the proposed development would not have a negative impact upon the visual amenities of the area.”
Concluding his report the head of environment and planning says: The proposed hotel is considered acceptable in terms of scale and design, and adequate onsite parking has been provided together with safe and satisfactory vehicular and pedestrian access.
“The development of the site would safeguard the existing trees and would not be detrimental to
local residential or visual amenity.”
The plans are one of several to have been submitted for the Plas Coch Retail Site site in recent months, with other applications including the redevelopment of the nearby Aldi supermarket and the creation of a drive-thru Costa.
The application will be considered for approval by councillors next Monday.
