Permission granted for new boutique hotel in Milton Keynes

PLANNING officers in Milton Keynes have given planning permission for part of a 1970s office building to be turned in to a boutique hotel.

Norfolk House is one of a pair of matching office buildings that were designed by Milton Keynes Development Corporations own team of architects during the construction of the new town.

Documents submitted to the council by owners Owner Commercial Estates Group (CEG) say that “vast quantities of the existing floorspace” at Norfolk House and twin Ashton House have been marketed with little to no success and some of the property has been vacant since 2007.

Now a ‘change of use’ planning application to turn over 25,000 sq ft of the town centre property into a boutique hotel to be run by an unnamed operator has been granted by Milton Keynes council.
