More flats planned for redevelopment of The Vic
Written on May 3, 2021
The Royal Victoria Hotel, in Newport, has not hosted guests for nearly six years, and Town Centre Properties UK Ltd won permission to convert it into 12 apartments in 2018.
The company has now applied to build an extension at the rear of the St Marys Street site and redevelop it into 15 homes instead.
A statement by its planning agent says this is “essential” to make the project viable, promising the work will respect the “special architectural and historic qualities” of the listed building.
Newport Town Council will be consulted, and Telford and Wrekin Council’s planning department will make its decision at a later date.
