The company that own a 150-year-old Upper Norwood hotel seem determined to demolish it.

In October 2017, plans were rejected to demolish the buildings to the rear of the site, and replace them with a new rear extension (4-6 storeys in height height in storeys), adding nearly 200 rooms to the building.

The proposal was rejected "on the grounds of overdevelopment and massing, which is detrimental to the character and appearance to the conservation area and issues of car-parking and the impact on the scale of development on additional on-street car-parking."

Now Euro Hotel, the company that owns the Queens Hotel, has submitted a fresh development idea for Croydon Council to look over at this Thursday's (January 11) planning committee meeting.

Croydon North MP Steve Reed was pleased to see the initial proposal struck down and wants to make sure people's voices are once again heard this time around.

“My priority is making sure residents’ voices are heard and the local community does not suffer if the hotel is developed," he said.

"Everyone wants the Queen’s Hotel to be a success, but any expansion must enhance the local area not overwhelm it.

"This is a residential neighbourhood that already has severe problems with traffic congestion.

"The council should tell the developers that people come before profit, and the plans can only go ahead if they have the support of people living in the area.”

In the report that will be presented at Thursday's meeting, Euro Hotel highlighted what amendments have been made since the initial planning application that was rejected.

These include both the the reduction of total hotel bedrooms from 530 to 495 while increasing the number of 'family rooms' from 32 to 64 as well as an increase in parking spaces, from 170 to 207.

At the moment the hotel - which dates back to 1854 - has 334 rooms, 38 car parking spaces at the front of the hotel and space for 25 cars to park at the rear.
