Hotel and care home scheme for Welwyn Clock site

A HOTEL and a care home are set to be built on the site of The Clock hotel in Welwyn.

Two sets of plans have been submitted to Welwyn Hatfield Council which would see a 50-bedroom hotel built to the front of the site and a 58-bed care home on the larger back section of the site.

In a letter to planners, Mr Cromer, senior architect for Wincer Kievenaar, said: “To make efficient use of the land the new proposals split the existing site in two, with one half being developed as a care home (considerably smaller than that previously refused) and the other as a hotel.

“These proposals address the noise concerns raised on previously applications by completing replanning the care home so no bedrooms face the A1 and all assisted living accommodation faces Roman Road.”

The care home plans have been submitted by site owners Runwood Homes, with the application for the hotel made by Lasserton.
