Hotel plans for Manchester's London Road Fire Station given the go-ahead

The London Road Fire Station site in Manchester has finally been granted planning permission by Manchester City Council.

The plans aim to turn the former fire station into a boutique hotel and will include a hotel and spa, restaurants, bars, flats and offices.

The Grade II-listed building was bought by developer Allied London in 2015, which took the property over from Britannia Hotels which bought it in 1985. It has been vacant since 2001 despite continued promises to create a 227-bedroom hotel on the site.

Manchester City Council previously attempted to buy the building but was rejected in 2011.

Allied London appointed the Zetter Group as operator. The hotel, which is expected to have no more than 100 bedrooms, will be the fourth property for the Zetter Group.

The refurbished building is scheduled to open in summer 2019.
