G Gate inquiry closes

The public inquiry into the ECO/Sunlight plans for a Hotel in Olympia has closed.

Hammersmith & Fulham Council gave planning consent for the G Gate apartment hotel in Olympia last year, but the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government called the decision in.

ECO/Sunlight plan to turn the underdeveloped marshalling yard for the Olympia Conference Centre, on the corner of Hammersmith Road and Lyons Walk, into a 259 room hotel and a 69.5 square metre retail unit on the ground floor, which would include a restaurant.

The week long inquiry, held by the Planning Inspectorate, ran from July 27 to 30. A recommendation by the inspector is expected to be made in the coming months and will then pass to John Denham MP, the Secretary for State, to make his final decision.
