Green-light for conversion of Cleethorpes guesthouse
The property at 14 Isaacs Hill is to be internally redeveloped by Caden Homes Ltd into eight separate lodgings.
A number of “cosmetic” external changes are also planned.
It is understood that seven of the bedsits will have private shower facilities, but all eight will share a kitchen.
The planning application reads:
“The main structure and core of the existing building will remain as existing.
“External alterations will be cosmetic comprising replacement finishes and repairs to improve the appearance and longevity of the structure.
“External spaces will be tidied and repaired as appropriate to provide attractive functional external spaces.
“The existing garden shed will be repaired or replaced to provide a secure, lockable outside store for use of the residents.
“The proposal will result in a high-quality, eight-bedroom-suite HMO to bring the property back into beneficial use and improving the property and street scene.”
It is thought that an ongoing loss of income from holiday-makers is likely to have contributed to the sale and conversion scheme.
Hotels and B&Bs are currently only permitted to open for specific reasons including to accommodate people who are self-isolating.
People are not currently allowed to leave their homes and travel to other areas for leisure.
