The Worthing Hotel could be converted into a 44 bed shared flat

PLANS were submitted to convert a hotel into a 44 room shared apartment.

According to a statement filed with the plans, the hotel “continues to experience trading difficulties” and is scheduled to close this month.

“Therefore, in order to avoid leaving the building vacant and to help meet local housing needs, this application proposes that the accommodation be re-used for residential purposes and the properties used as shared apartments,” the statement said.

If plans are approved, the hotel would be converted into 44 en-suite bedrooms, communal kitchens, dining and living areas.

They were submitted by Robert Crossan, Strategic Director of SDR Group, an East Sussex-based private housing and social care provider.

So far, five residents have objected to the plans.

They fear that without proper management, the shelters could contribute to further anti-social behavior in the area.

A planning statement issued on behalf of the developer states: “The proposed use will be operated and managed by a local and established operator with a proven track record.”

A decision on the building permit is to be made on November 9th.

More details can be found on the Council’s planning portal, reference: AWDM/1472/22.

Last year, separate plans to continue using Castles Guest House, 6 Windsor Road, as temporary and emergency accommodation were met with objections from neighbors after anti-social behavior increased in the area.

Sussex Police also opposed the plans, saying that 6 Windsor Road had required “a high level of police presence” which “impacted police resources”.

Worthing Borough Council refused to back the plans and the owner appealed.

Sussex Police have not objected to the new plans for Windsor House Hotel after “extensive discussions” with the neighborhood police team.
