Sandown - Isle of Wight

Walsingham Planning achieved planning permission for a new Hotel inland of the Sandown Resort on the Isle of Wight in 2014, but with the demand for rooms being so high, Premier Inn identified another site in the town, this time on the Seafront.

With a very confined, steeply sloping site and adjoining flats and houses in close proximity, it was necessary to co-ordinate the development team from the outset, to ensure that the scheme was conceived to be able to meet the Council noise and environmental requirements.

Difficulties regarding the servicing of a confined seafront site in the midst of traffic calming, limited visitor parking and with extremely heavy pedestrian flows required to be resolved before the application could be submitted.

Following pre-application consultations with the Council, Walsingham Planning was able to submit an application for the demolition and complete redevelopment of the former Carlton Hotel, which was approved under delegated powers inside of the 13 week statutory period.
