Proposals indicate that the former NHS Healthcare Services building on Newland (to the rear of the hotel) would be demolished to accommodate access to the extension.

The project designs, produced alongside Core Architects and Globe Consultants, set out an increase in both accommodation space and extra conference and function facilities.

The modern six storey building would be scaled at varying levels, with flat roofs occupying terraces for function rooms.

Access to the extended car park would be from Newland.
