Pandemic repercussions spell the end for Aberdeen hotel
July 20 2020
Halliday Fraser Munro has brought forward an application for planning permission in principle to convert the Mariner Hotel at 349 Great Western Road into 10 flats and build up to four houses on land to the rear.
The work includes part demolition of a 1990s era rear extension to accommodate the change in use while retaining the granite main building, freeing up space on the hotel car park to build terraced, townhouse or mews-style properties.
This will be subject to further detailed design work subject to ongoing discussions with planning officers. In a statement, the practice wrote: "The existing hotel business has been detrimentally impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and has been forced to close as a consequence. The owners do not see a hotel use on the site being viable in the future and are therefore looking to change the use of the site to provide a viable and sustainable use for the property befitting of the local area."
Mature trees and boundary walls will also be retained to maintain the setting of the Great Western Road conservation area.
