Apartment Plans approved for Re-development of former La Gondola hotel and restaurant.
Planning permission has been granted, at appeal for the demolition and re-development of the former La Gondola restaurant in Osmaston Road, Derby.
La Gondola opened in 1969 and was a popular restaurant and hotel for decades. However, the business declined and eventually went into liquidation in 2009.
The building stood empty for 14 years prior to being purchased by EB Property Solutions part of the Elgie Group in 2021. The developers originally submitted plans for demolition and redevelopment, this application was refused in December 2021.
Matthew Montague Architects redesigned the site and submitted a revised planning application in April 2022 and despite being recommended for approval by the City Council Planning Officers this application was also refused by Derby City Councillors Planning Committee.
Following this decision JMI Planning were instructed and an appeal was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate. After a successful review, the planning inspector has given the go ahead and the scheme has been approved.
The approved development comprises 42 apartments over two four storey blocks; 34 being two-bedroomed and eight one-bedroomed.
