A public consultation is to take place tonight (5 Jan 2012) for the redevelopment of the former bowling alley at Tower Street in Harrogate.
Members of the public are invited to view and discuss plans at the Tap & Spile public house on Tower Street between 3pm and 7pm.
Leeds based developer Gregory Projects Ltd will submit a planning application on 17th January with proposals to transform the disused site into a four-storey, 78 bedroom hotel including restaurant together with a gym on the ground floor/basement.
Travelodge has already agreed terms to lease the hotel and restaurant over a 25 year term and there is strong interest in the gym proposition
Richard Tovey of Gregory Projects, said:
The bowling alley on Tower Street closed down in July 2009 and the site owner had been unable to attract another occupier despite a thorough marketing campaign. Over this period the buildings deteriorated and are now a bit of an eye sore. We are pleased to have acquired the site based on the support of Travelodge which has given us the confidence to progress an exciting new leisure attraction for the area.
