Marble Place, Southport, Hotel Development Proposal

HUMBER Investments Ltd, the owners of the Marble Place shopping centre, have submitted a Planning application to Sefton Council for a major proposal to build a new 96 bedroom hotel on part of the shopping centre complex.

The hotel proposal would represent a massive investment in Marble Place and will create a major boost to the centre in terms of footfall, vitality and viability. It is part of Humber Investments’ ongoing strategy to manage, invest in and improve the centre.

The proposal has been designed to ensure minimal disruption to the operation of the centre during construction. The centre will continue to trade during the construction phases and only the units within the development site itself will be affected. These units are currently on short term occupation arrangements or are vacant.

The scheme would contribute to the wider regeneration and performance of Southport town centre. It will strengthen the links through the centre and its connection with attractions such as the new Sports Direct complex.

The scheme has been the subject of extensive pre-application discussions with Sefton Council and has been warmly supported in principle. It is also considered that the proposal could act as major catalyst for further investment and regeneration in this part of the town centre.

Philip Staddon, Director of PJS Development Solutions Ltd, which has submitted the application, said:- "This is a major and important regeneration scheme that represents a significant vote of investor confidence in Southport. We hope that the application will be supported and that it will lead to further investment in the Town Centre, which we consider has great potential."

Full details of the planning application are available on Sefton Council’s website, just enter the following reference:- 'DC/2016/02438', into the search box, once your logged onto the page.
