Another set of plans have been drawn up for conversion of Tring’s Rose and Crown Hotel.

Already two planning applications for the closed hotel in High Street have been given the go ahead.

The first – granted in June 2008 – involved creating a 20-bed hotel as part of a retail, restaurant and residential scheme. The other, given the green light in August last year, proposed homes instead of a hotel.

Under the latest plan – considered by Dacorum Borough Council’s development and control committee on Thursday – the hotel would become homes for the over 55s. There would be a restaurant and more homes built at the rear. The new plans show 10 fewer parking places than before, which concerned some committee members, who fear it could but pressure on town centre car parks. Councillors voted to pass the application subject to the completion of a legal agreement, which includes a condition that the development should begin within three years.
