Gravesend DA11

Following Admiral Tavern’s acquisition of the landmark Clarendon Royal Hotel in Gravesend, we were retained to provide advice on maximising the development value. Originally built in 1655, and converted into a hotel in the 1840s, the Grade II Listed property occupies a prominent position overlooking the Thames. Given the size of the site it was immediately apparent that any scheme would have to include affordable housing, but providing such accommodation in a Listed building would be difficult. A scheme was therefore conceived that comprised the conversion of the hotel into 21 apartments and a large commercial unit, whilst the former car park would accommodate a further 30 flats for affordable housing. Once permission was granted we successfully sold the car park to Broomleigh Housing Association, and the hotel to specialist local developers Thames View Living.
