The site which forms part of the Smoke Stop Restaurant is level and fairly regular in shape and extends in total to approx. 0.33 acres (0.13 hectares) or thereabouts with access to be provided via the main Smoke Stop entrance.
The site is considered suitable for a standalone commercial development for C1 uses including hotel/motel with limitations on the provision of bar and food services.
Planning permission was previously granted for the development of a 14 bedroom motel accommodation block which has now lapsed. A similar development is considered appropriate for the site and location given the shortage of available bedroom accommodation within the local vicinity.
