Hotel closure unnecessary as part of residential build to the rear

A condition imposed on a permission for a small residential development within the grounds of a hotel in Buckinghamshire, which required the hotel to close during the period of construction, was held to be unnecessary.

Based on the submitted information an inspector could not be sure how many on-site parking spaces for guests would remain available while construction of the 11 apartments occurred. Some spaces were likely to be available and while this might mean that some guests had to park on nearby roads, this would not be harmful to highway safety. The site was reasonably accessible by public transport and guests could be advised of the building works when making a booking.
