Plans approved to convert Bradford electrical store into boutique hotel

Plans for a new boutique hotel in Bradford have been given the go ahead from Bradford Council. 

Formerly an electrical store located in Ilkey, the building will now be converted into a eight-bedroom hotel in the centre of the town. 

Planning was submitted by Andrew Asquith in July 2020, who said: “The building has not been well maintained for a number of years and is in need of investment to prevent it falling into further disrepair.

“The front of the building will be retained and refurbished. This development will enhance and preserve the existing character of the building frontage on to Cowpasture Road.” 

Approving the plans, Bradford Council added: “The proposal would bring people into the area who would in turn help to sustain the local economy and support other local shops and services.

“The proposal will bring the building back into use and will improve the appearance of the building which in turn will ensure its long term survival.”
