Meridien Hotel

Works on the extension of the Meridien Hotel has commenced.

A Planning application has been approved on the basis of new policies introduced by the Planning Authority whereby hotels may apply for a development permission to increase the height of the hotel building to not more than two additional floors over and above the height limitation permitted in the Local Plan.  The application presented in January 2017 will add 114 beds to the Meridien hotel.

Plans submitted to the PA show an addition of three storeys on the western wing of the hotel and the addition of two storeys on the eastern wing.  The Management of the hotel have also applied to develop a multi-storey car park, and an overlying temporary garden and pool.  The new underground car park will provide for 330 parking spaces.
