SITE DESCRIPTION The site is a 0.05 hectare plot on the Promenade approximately 180m to the north of Waterloo Road (and is the next property but one north of the junction with Shaw Road). The site incorporates no.s 397 and 399 Promenade which are positioned within a terraced block between Alexandra Road to the north and Shaw Road to the south. The two properties have been converted into the "Burlingham" hotel, and are three storeys in height, with 397 having a small front dormer and there are first floor bay windows on the front and a sun lounge across the ground floor front, behind an open forecourt, utilised for parking. The hotel has been extended at the rear with three-storey rear wing extensions up to the back of the plots. As such the site is now intensely developed. The site is currently vacant. The adjacent property to the north is the Howards Crest hotel which has been recently renovated and improved; and to the south is a fish and chip bar/restaurant a number of fixed stalls on the forecourt; with permanent flats in two storeys above. Yates' Wine Lodge is further to the south across Shaw Road. 

DETAILS OF PLANNNG PERMISSION The planning permission outlines the demolition of the existing buildings and erection of a five storey building with restaurant unit at ground floor level and seven self-contained flats intended for permanent occupation above.

The building would have a northerly pedestrian access to the flats, with a central access to the commercial unit. The existing open forecourt would be reconfigured and used partially as an outside (seating) area for the food outlet, with the remainder given over to five car parking spaces with some soft-landscaping and a front boundary wall. Five of the seven flats at upper floor level would offer two bedrooms and separate lounges, kitchens and bathrooms, There would be one flat the same except for having one bedroom and penthouse to the top floor offering the same but with three bedrooms. Each flat would also have a balcony overlooking the sea. The building proposed would not exceed 14.8m in height. The upper floors would align with the front elevation of the Howards Crest Hotel, which is considered to be the original building line of the block. The external seating area at ground floor would then project forward by 1.8m and would align with the balconies above and be partly sheltered by them. At the rear of the site would be designated cycle and refuse stores, accessed via the existing rear alleyway off Bolton Street.
