Westin hotel in camden is held up by planners

Westin Hotels & Resorts, which added Turnberry Hotel to its UK portfolio last year, is still waiting to hear whether a London council will grant planning permission for its third UK operation.

Camden Council was expected to give the go-ahead to a luxury hotel in the former Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society headquarters in Bloomsbury Square this month. But Westin and property owners Blackfriars Investments will have to wait until at least April to secure planning permission.

The five-star hotel will have 325 rooms and is expected to cost £75m to develop. Westin will fund the construction costs and Blackfriars will retain equity in the joint venture.
