Apartments plan for city centre hotel space

The conference facilities of a city centre hotel could be turned into flats, according to a planning application submitted to Nottingham City Council.

Richard Johal, who owns the St James Hotel in the city, wants to turn the space, located on the upper floors of 102 Friar Lane, into 14 apartments made up of 8 x 1 bed and 6 x 2 bed flats.

A planning statement reads: “The building is currently under-used and the proposed uses will safeguard the future of the building. The proposed change of use will not affect the character or appearance of the
Castle Conservation Area alterations or cause harm to the significance of any designated or non-designated heritage assets.”
