A major hospitality development plan has been submitted for the edge of town, with a 63-bed hotel, national retailer and a drive-thru ‘national chain’ coffee shop earmarked for Buttington Roundabout.

With a MacDonald’s already set to join the Tuffins Garage at the location, planners will now be mulling over the proposed multi-million-pound development that is surrounding Limekiln Cottage which appears to be staying put.

The plans show that the four-storey hotel will be built next to the drive-thru coffee shop with the cottage then sandwiched between the development and another retail unit with car park.

In summary the plans consist of:

·      Construction of a new 1500sqf A1 unit for a national chain with associated parking.

·      Construction of a new national chain drive-thru Coffee Shop with associated parking.

·      Construction of a new 63-bed hotel for a national chain with associated parking.

·      Retention of the Lime Kilns with associated picnic area and Lime Kiln Cottage.

·      New access arrangement onto the site

The application document states that the proposed retail units will “provide a huge boost to employment in the local area” with 25 full time and 25 part time jobs created.

“The hotel proposed within this application provides improved visibility and will help to boost tourism in the local area as it will provide an ideal resting place for travellers to and from Wales and a facility for local people to enjoy by dining out,” it states.

The application will first go to the Town Council to consider before Powys will make the final decision at a later date.
