Thanks must go to an eagle-eyed youngster for spotting this before I did.
PA19/01978 | Full Planning Permission and Conservation Area Consent for the development of a 70-bed budget hotel, including bar and cafe, with associated car park and access works | Former Bus And Coach Depot Lansdown Road Bude Cornwall EX23 8BN
Architects from Buckinghamshire have designed plans to transform the former bus depot on Lansdown Road into a Travelodge with 70 bedrooms and 30 car parking spaces. The site was originally used as a bus garage for the Western National Bus company and was a primary stop for bus passengers. Up to 10 coaches were garaged at the premises at any one time.
The site received planning approval in April 2016 for 5 townhouses, 10 flats and 3 commercial spaces, but is currently derelict, in a poor state of repair and unoccupied since 2003.
The application notes that Premier Inn was approved without parking spaces and that recent approval for an 80 space public car park only 50m distant is likely to be constructed on the adjacent golf course in April 2019.
