Council officers want flats at Park Hotel in Southampton to be refused

Daily Echo: Pub conversion plans hang in the balance Pub conversion plans hang in the balance

PROPOSALS to convert a former pub into flats hang in the balance.

Glen Sahota wants to convert the empty Park Hotel in Shirley Road, Southampton, into 11 flats.

City council officers had recommended that the plans be refused due to concerns over parking and its design before a meeting of the authority’s planning panel.

But at the meeting, during which residents and two ward councillors spoke in favour of the plans, it was decided to put the proposals out to extended consultation. Mr Sahota had amended the plans.

There are a lot of empty business premises in this area, all of which could and should be converted into housing. The area does not really need any more shops with the close proximity to the town centre and Shirley high street, however we do have a massive housing shortage and this would go some way to reducing the shortfall. Some of the buildings are quite large, e.g the old Co-op and the polish supermarket. It would also make the area look a lot more tidy, there is nothing worse than boarded up shops etc.
