Abersoch hotel plans submitted

Hourigan Connolly has put in a detailed planning application on behalf of Broomco to Gwynedd Council for the regeneration of the White House Hotel.

The scheme, designed by Calder Peel, includes the demolition of the existing hotel, which has been closed for several years, and the construction of a 42-bedroom hotel and spa facility, a restaurant and bar as well as 18 residential apartments.

Daniel Connolly, director of Hourigan Connolly, said: "The White House hotel is currently in a derelict and dilapidated state, well beyond repair. To have an investment in such a landmark location is a fantastic opportunity for Abersoch. A great deal of consideration has gone into the scheme in terms of the scale and design quality of the building which respect and compliment the surrounding area.

"Discussions with the council and local community have helped to shape the proposals and the feedback received to date has generally been very positive. This is an exciting opportunity for everyone involved and we are hopeful the Council will grant planning permission for the re-use of this key tourism site that would deliver a high quality development to the benefit of the local community."

Broomco is a private property consortium.

This is brilliant news and I hope the Planning Dept. at Gwynedd Council will not make things difficult for the developer. The old White House Hotel site is a complete mess and totally spoils the whole atmosphere and natural beauty of Abersoch village. For a developer to want to invest in our beautiful quiet corner of the world is to be totally encouraged especially in this difficult economic climate. Great news and can’t wait to see work get underway.
