The application states: “The provision of a new boutique hotel in an edge of centre location is consistent with the strategic and sustainability policies of the adopted local plan.

The site is in a highly sustainable and accessible location between the railway station and the centre of the town.

“The building is suitable for conversion and no external alterations are proposed.

"The limited scale and nature of the hotel accommodation (no function room or bar is such that it is unlikely to have an unacceptable impact on residential amenity.”

The application can be viewed on Fenland District Council’s planning portal using reference F/YR23/0659/F.
