Planning permission granted for new Edinburgh hotel

Planning permission has been granted to property development and investment business the Chris Stewart Group (CSG) to convert a row of Edinburgh townhouses into a hotel.

City of Edinburgh Council has granted permission to transform 1 to 5 Baxter's Place, a row of former townhouses dating back to 1798, into a 239-bedroom four star hotel with restaurant and bar open to the public.

In granting planning permission, the council acknowledged that the redevelopment "will enhance the character and appearance of the New Town conservation area and the Edinburgh World Heritage Site".

Commenting on the decision, CSG chief executive Chris Stewart said: "Edinburgh has a need for further quality hotel accommodation and the site at Baxter's Place offers an ideal central location.

"We can now press ahead with the work scheduled to renovate this prime site and attract further investment into the capital. The group is looking forward to restoring this iconic terrace back to its former glory."
