Permission granted for contemporary 120-bed hotel in sensitive city centre location


O’Neill Associates obtained full planning permission for a 5-storey, 120-bed hotel at the The Stonebow in York.  The application related to a tightly constrained site between a Grade II* listed public house and high quality modern offices, and close to a number of historic buildings that are within York’s Central Historic Core Conservation Area, as well as the recent Hungate residential development.

The Practice provided planning advice and assistance to progress the scheme from initial proposals to approval. This involved extensive consultation with Council Officers, Historic England and the York Conservation Area Advisory Panel, and addressing a range of issues including design of the hotel and its impact on heritage assets and neighbouring buildings. 

The approved scheme delivers an attractive contemporary solution to development of a sensitive and challenging site which will integrate with the mixed modern and historical context, and make a positive contribution to local character and distinctiveness.
