A vacant restaurant / hotel in Marford looks set to be given a fresh lease of life.
The Trevor Arms Hotel on Marford Hill could be refurbished and create employment opportunities if a planning application is successful.
The building, which is is Grade 2 Listed has remained vacant since its closure last year.
Amongst the proposals the application states that compliant stairs and disabled ramp access to the side entrance would be installed along with the removal of a modern ‘stud partition to the kitchen. It is hoped that this would create a ‘cosy seating area’ along with the redesign of the kitchen area.
Within the application’s supporting documents it states: “The internal design layout has been planned to minimise disruption to the original building fabric, to ensure that historical features and major original walls in the listed premises are retained.”
Overall the proposals would involve a ‘traditional interior fit out to a very high standard’ that would cater for demand for local and ‘passing clientele’.
The applications Supporting Documents add: “The proposals will create employment for managers, kitchen and bar staff which has been recently unsuccessful and vacant, partly due to the unworkable layout which these proposals seek to remedy.”
The application will go before the Wrexham Council Planning Committee at a later date.
