Pub conversion to hotel would undermine economic plan

The conversion of a public house in east London to a 22 bedroom hotel would be contrary to the council's economic, investment and regeneration strategy.

Concentrating attractions, facilities and quality accommodation with specific areas and centres would enhance their attractiveness to tourists and visitors an inspector determined and since the premises lay in a predominantly residential area, its conversion to a hotel would not meet this objective. It would divert investment from target areas and would give rise to other impacts including undermining the amenity of local residents due to increased activity and increasing on-street parking pressures.
