Hotel planned for former Vauxhall Motors site

Planning consent has been granted for a new hotel as part of the redevelopment of the former Vauxhall Motors manufacturing site in Luton.

The hotel is among a number of development plans for the site, proposed by the Augur Group. Others include up to 625 homes, a new supermarket, amenity retail and office space, as well as storage and industrial space.

Augur Group was appointed in 2012 to take over the project after plans to regenerate the brownfield site had been in the pipeline for almost a decade.

Design work for thee off-site and on-site infrastructure has commenced, with on-site works expected to begin in the third quarter of 2014.

The redevelopment scheme aims to create up to 2,000 permanent jobs.

Simon Mann, managing director of Augur Group, commented: "The site has great importance in the history of the area and our aim is to shape its future by creating a highly sustainable development."
