YIEWSLEY could soon have it's first hotel- if planners get their way.
An application has been submitted to the Hillingdon Council planning department, proposing a new development combining an office block and a hotel.
It would be located at 21 High Street, Yiewsley, and involves the redevelopment of Harrier House.
The hotel would be just 150 metres from West Drayton train station, making journeys into central London for visitors easily accessible.
It is also proposed that 116 jobs would be created if the hotel and office block is to be approved.
However, this is not the first time plans for the site have been submitted, last October plans were lodged and subsequently withdrawn, after concerns that the site would have a negative impact on the scenery of the nearby Grand Union Canal.
The revised design hopes to ensure the reasons for refusal were addressed, but while the new plans are lower in height than before, it is still four storeys tall.
The hotel would consist of 45 bedrooms, and 35 car parking spaces are provided on site, which is less the total of 52, which the site currently holds.
The applicant is Harrier Properties Ltd and the planning agents are Turley Associates.
