It is important to bear in mind that this is just the start of the planning process for the Abbey Street development.

The plans laid out here will be delivered in two distinct phases. Phase One will bring forward the hotel. The remaining facilities, including the food hall, residential area, cinema and leisure facilities and multi-storey car park, would be delivered as part of Phase Two.

The up-coming planning application will be a hybrid application containing a detailed submission for the hotel and outline permission for the principle of redeveloping the rest of the site through a mixture of commercial, leisure, residential uses and new areas of public space.
