The developer will be infilling the existing building to create a new hotel and office floorspace.

The firm also has permission for a change of use from office to hotel of existing floorspace at the first and part of the second floor.

The development concerns the building above 56-66 Howardsgate and 35-43 Fretherne Road.

Travelodge will create 12 full-time jobs.
