Major chain bids for new pub and hotel on edge of King's Lynn

By Lynn News Reporter

Plans for a new pub, restaurant and hotel, which form part of a major development on the edge of Lynn, have been lodged with council officials.

Pub chain Marstons wants to develop the facility on the Morston Point land, on Greenyard Way.

A reserved matters planning application, which has now been submitted to West Norfolk Council, is seeking consent for a 38 bedroom hotel, pub and restaurant, plus associated infrastructure, including more than 90 parking spaces.

Documents submitted as part of the application said: "The architectural style adopted for the proposed development derives from historical precedents including the coaching inn, tavern and public house and integrates these with the contemporary concept of eating and drinking as a social family event.

"The style reflects a contemporary and modern feel with traditional values of a public house.

"The materials proposed will provide an attractive modern statement but also define its nature as a traditional public house."

The new proposal comes just weeks after plans for a new Lidl supermarket and a drive-thru food outlet, believed to be for the bakery giant Greggs, in the area were also submitted.

Both form part of a much larger development proposal for the land, which was granted outline planning permission three years ago and allowed for other new facilities including a DIY store and garden centre, plus a car showroom.

But concerns have been raised that the area may not be properly landscaped as a whole if individual developers are allowed to proceed with their own schemes.

Critics also argued the Greggs plan would address known problems of waste packaging and obesity.
