Dorville Hotel plans refused

PLANS to redevelop the Dorville Hotel in Weston have been refused by North Somerset Council.

PLANS to redevelop the Dorville Hotel in Weston have been refused by North Somerset Council.

The authority has written to the applicants, Connolly and Callaghan, who wanted to demolish the hotel and build a five-storey building with 40 flats, to see if a different scheme can be thought up.

The plans also included converting 14/16 Madeira Road into 10 flats after knocking down the existing rear extensions and putting up a further three homes.

The application has been refused because it fails to preserve the character of the Conservation Area, does not provide financial contributions to lessen the impact on local services and has no affordable housing included in the plans.

"We must ensure that the right development is ultimately created for this site in order to get the best for the people already living in the area and those who will be moving into the area.
