Hotel looks likely

PLANS for a new hotel in East Oxford have been earmarked for approval.

Planners at Oxford City Council have recommended councillors approve proposals for a 66- bedroom hotel at Tyndale House, Cowley Road.

Wilton Place Properties Ltd wants to extend the building, which currently houses offices and change its use to enable it to open as a hotel.

A report to the council’s west area planning committee, which will meet on Thursday, urges councillors to approve it.

It said: “The proposed development would make an efficient use of a previously developed site to provide shortstay accommodation which meets a required need, in a wholly sustainable location, without causing an adverse impact upon highway and pedestrian safety or undue environmental disturbance to surrounding residential properties.”

Comments on the planning bid were received from several residents, most of whom supported the proposal.

Hope they have good double glazing - hotel visitors like to sleep part of the time.

Who has took the bung on this one. A 66 room hotel in a reasidential area, on an already gridlocked road with no parking APPROVED. A travel lodge on the ring road with more than adequate parking REFUSED??????

A hotel with a large car park attracts traffic. This one will have no car park and is in the middle of a CPZ. It won't attract any traffic other than the odd delivery van. It will therefore have a lower traffic impact than the one which was refused.

It's a good idea anyway. There aren't enough budget hotels near the city centre.

There's a car park in Union Street just along the road...

The refusal of the Redbridge hotel was tiresome.

Grow up and lose you're silly objection to anything motorised except the road blocking bus. How is the hotel going to work without car parking, oh yes now I know, it will offer short time rooms for the local ladies of the night, and drivers when they finish their shift. Eh Slim Jim.

I wish I were actually slim!

The hotel will work like all the other city-centre Travelodges without parking, and I don't see how you can object to it. They want to open it, it will have minimal impact on the local environment and they are happy to invest in it. It's their money and none of your business.

I don't object to anything motorised, I drive a car myself, it just isn't an appropriate travel solution for EVERY eventuality. City-centre business trips or weekends away is an example of where many people choose to leave the car at home. This hotel has recognised the market and are investing in it.
