St Mary at Hill


Approval has been given to develop a 184 bed Premiere Inn at St Mary at Hill, London, EC3. This office to hotel conversion will be developed by Beltane Asset Management as a developer turnkey deal.

Our verified views contributed to a detailed planning application that was approved by the City of London’s Planning Committee.

The images – including a view taken from the top of the nearby Great Fire of London Monument – were used in extensive pre and post submission negotiations with the Committee and a number of local third parties, including residents and the local Church.

Key planning issues related to matters of design, impact on heritage assets, change in land use, and local amenity.

The scheme received positive officer recommendation, and despite objections from local residents, was granted planning consent in March 2012.
