A planning application has been submitted for a 56-bedroom hotel as part of a wider development within the Frenchgate shopping centre in Doncaster.
The hotel would be located within a redeveloped five-storey property, currently occupied by offices, above the shopping centre. It is one of three planning applications that have been submitted by the owner and manager of the shopping centre, Frenchgate Limited Partnership (the Partnership), for a new hotel, gym and multiplex cinema.
The cinema application includes four new restaurant units between 3,500sq ft and 4,300sq ft in size.
Frenchgate is currently undergoing a £10m transformation, which has seen new retail, food and beverage lettings within the centre, located above Doncaster's rail and bus interchange.
Operators to be targeted for the hotel will be those who currently do not have a presence in the area. Alongside the independent Earl of Doncaster hotel, the town has properties branded by Best Western, Ramada Encore, Premier Inn, Travelodge and Campanile.
