We are committed to building high-quality hotels and have designed this hotel to meet BREEAM Excellent standards, putting it in the top 10% non-domestic buildings in the country.


We will achieve this with careful design, including:


Making use of the most sustainable and energy-efficient materials, as well as using air source heat pumps and solar panels. The hotel will be all-electric, making no use of fossil fuels.


We are also conscious of the importance of water and our proposals will meet BREEAM Excellent standards for water performance, with features including dual-flush toilets, low-flow water fittings, and managing rainwater drainage on the site in a sustainable way.


The hotel has been designed with the future of the materials in mind, meaning we have worked to design out waste, to use materials that will last for a long time, and using materials that can be reused or recycled.


The proposals will deliver a biodiversity net gain, meaning that the site will have better planting and animal habitats than it currently does, with new features such as bird and bat boxes and wildlife-friendly planting.


We want to encourage sustainable travel, and so the proposed new hotel will include cycle parking for staff members and will be cycle-friendly for guests, including allowing guests to store bikes in their rooms if they wish.
