G-Gate approved by Minister

The G-Gate hotel planning approval has been upheld by the ministerial call-in.

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, John Denham, has agreed with Hamersmith & Fulham Council’s decision on the G-Gate Hotel application from Earls Court/Olympia Group and Aparthotels Limited.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector’s report, saying: “The proposed hotel would not appear over-dominant in relation to any nearby buildings and would respect the urban grain. The design and materials would be of an extremely high quality and the development would promote inclusivity.”

The plans for G-Gate will now see a 259 room hotel built above the marshalling yard next to the Olympia Conference Centre.
