Plans for new Welshpool hotel submitted again

Created on 30/07/2022 @ 06:55

Plans for a  £7.5 million, 40-bedroom hotel, a drive-through Starbucks coffee shop and Greggs bakery development for the outskirts of Welshpool have been re-submitted with Powys County Council.

The application by KIM properties is for land at Moors Farm, Rhallt Lane, to the west of the A483, and could create 60 full and part time jobs.

Twice plans have been withdrawn amid concerns over the traffic capacity of the existing island at Buttington Cross.

The proposal would see the lime kilns located there kept, but the cottage at the site would be partially demolished.

Earlier this year agent Eric Hall, of TDH Estates Ltd, explained the proposal would take over a year to build with the Starbucks and Greggs built first over an eight-month period, while the hotel would take just over a year. Mr Hall believes this would create “around” 100 construction jobs.

Mr Hall said: “Once operational, the various uses would support around 30 full time jobs in the two drive throughs with an additional eight jobs in the hotel.

“Overall, around 60 full and part time posts.”

Mr Hall said: “It is likely that all staff will be locally based and would benefit from the employment and training initiatives run by each of these companies.”

But there was immediate opposition to the scheme with Welshpool Town Council twice objecting to the scheme.
