Green light for North Berwick care home and hotel
Planning permission has been granted for a care home and hotel in North Berwick.
The development at Tantallon Road has been designed by Yeoman McAllister Architects on behalf of Frontier Estates (Berwick) Limited.
The proposed hotel would be a three storey building with 65 bedrooms and a bar/ restaurant with 22 covers. The care home would also be a three storey building with 70 bedrooms and shared communal facilities.
The site is allocated as employment land and currently houses a garage/workshop and car showroom as well as a blacksmiths and steel fabricators. It also falls outwith the North Berwick Conservation Area.
East Lothian Council officers had recommended granting of permission for the development and, following a lengthy debate and contributions from the developer and from objectors, committee members voted seven to three in favour of supporting the officers’ recommendation.
