Plans to build 52 homes on site of fire-ravaged Clayton Lodge Hotel

The Clayton Lodge Hotel has been closed since March 2020 but plans to build more than 50 new homes on the site of a fire-damaged former hotel have been put forward. Clayton Lodge Hotel closed in March 2020 at the start of the coronavirus pandemic but never reopened.

A blaze ripped through the empty building in April 2021 and the Clayton Road site has since been plagued by antisocial behaviour – with residents calling for something to be done about the site. In 2017 the hotel had its alcohol licence suspended for three months following a major investigation.

But now the buildings could be demolished to make way for 52 homes as part of plans put forward by Lioncourt Homes following a public consultation. It wants to develop a mix of two, three and four bedroom properties, including detached, semi-detached and terraced homes.

A new use needs to be found for the Staffordshire site.

Clayton Lodge New Builds Staffordshire A planning statement submitted to Newcastle Borough Council as part of the application said: “Whilst the development would result in the permanent loss of the hotel use this has already been inactive for some time and the premises have been subject to vandalism and anti-social behaviour. A new use needs to be found for the site.

“There is no prospect of a new hotel being developed on the site, or the existing premises being reused for this purpose. The proposals provide for a sustainable development of housing including family housing which will assist in meeting local housing need and will boost supply.”

A mix of 10 two bedroom, 20 three bedroom and 22 four-bedroom homes is proposed for the site. The main access would be near the existing entrance towards the northern end of Clayton Road and a pedestrian access would be created at the southern end of the site.

All homes would have private gardens

Trees would be retained as part of an area of open space near the site entrance. Further tree planting is also proposed across the development and all homes would have private gardens.

The statement adds: “The majority of the houses throughout the scheme will be two storeys reflecting the surrounding building heights. Two and a half storey house types are also used across the development to add variation to the street scene.
