Planning Approved For Two Hotels In Belfast

Belfast City Council gave the go-ahead for two new developments to be built in Hope Street and the extension of the Ten Square Hotel on the corner of Linenhall Street and Donegall Square South.

A 179-bedroom new build hotel is to be developed, as well as an additional 46 rooms at Ten Square Hotel.

Chair of the committee, Councillor Matt Garrett, said: "The fact that we have been able to grant planning permission for six major new hotels in nine months is a clear demonstration of how this Council is committed to working for the benefit of the city, and to ensuring that proposals such as these are moved forward as quickly and efficiently as possible."

The other hotels to have been granted planning permission in recent months are at the former Harland and Wolff headquarters building in Titanic Quarter, the 'Grand Central' in the former Windsor House in Bedford Street, the former Belfast Metropolitan College campus in Brunswick Street, and the conversion of a former office complex in Victoria Street. This represents a total of almost 700 new bedrooms.
