Go-ahead for 86-room Morecambe seafront hotel
Approval has been granted for plans to develop an 86-bedroom hotel on Morecambe seafront.
The five-storey seafront hotel will be positioned on Marine Road Central and opposite the highly anticipated Eden Project Morecambe.
Lancaster City Council this week welcomed the plans, which will also include a restaurant, bar, coffee shop and a standalone retail unit on the ground floor of the new building.
Luke Averill, managing director of Failsworth-based developer TAG, said the scheme is expected to start on site in 2024.
He said: “More than 60 jobs will be created in the local area throughout construction and hotel operations.”
He added: “Our international hotel partner is also honoured to become a part of Morecambe’s famous seafront, one that will soon enough be home to Eden Project Morecambe.”
Consultants on the scheme, which will be built to a BREAM excellent standard, include DAY Architectural, Zerum, MB Heritage, Scalia Planning, Rockhunter, Adept, Jaw Sustainability, SVM and TPM Landscape and SK Transport.
