Town council votes to recommend refusal of plans to convert historic Downham Market hotel into housing
Town councillors in Downham have voted to recommend refusal of a planning application to convert a historic hotel into apartments.
Members of Downham Market Town Council’s planning committee met on Tuesday, where they discussed the proposals for the Grade II listed Castle Hotel and agreed the plans would "adversely affect" the town centre.
At the meeting, councillors said they believed the hotel was a "viable business” and it would be "a shame to lose it".
