    Keypoint Guernsey Limited, advised by Indigo Planning, has been given the go ahead to redevelop the former Park Royal Hotel site in west London to create a 152-bedroom hotel. The London Borough of Ealing unanimously voted to grant planning consent for the hotel, which will also have a ground floor restaurant/bar and valet parking in the basement providing 51 spaces.

    The hotel is aimed at both the business and leisure market and the owner is in discussion with a high profile hotel operator but is welcoming enquiries. The development will restore the locally listed building’s façade, the surrounding advertisement hoardings will be removed and its overall appearance greatly improved.

    The 0.23 ha (0.6 acre) conservation area site was formerly home to the locally listed Park Royal Hotel public house, more recently known as Magnat, and is located on the A40 Western Avenue between Park Royal and Hanger Lane underground stations.

    Mathew Mainwaring, Director at Indigo Planning said: “As well as providing a high quality hotel and around 65 new jobs, these plans will bring a locally listed building back into viable use and enhance the surrounding conservation area. We have undertaken a significant amount of consultation with the local community and this paved the way for the committee’s overwhelming support for the application. Following Ealing Council’s decision, work is set to start later this year.”

    Architects for the project are CareyJones ChapmanTolcher.
