The Parsonage Hotel
The Parsonage is a 53 bedroomed country house hotel in a village setting near York. The owners wished to add a spa and leisure suite to keep up with market trends and an initial scheme had been refused planning permission. The location is in Green Belt and a conservation area. Working with a specialist Planning QC and with Planning Consultants, Salon Consulting were commissioned to produce a Business Case that would support the development of a revised scheme in this sensitive site. Planning permission was successfully obtained for the new scheme and the spa has now fulfilled the business and employment objectives. Salon Consulting subsequently assisted the owners in gaining a further planning permission for the conversion and extension of an under-utilised building on the site into a café-bar-brasserie.
