Premier Inn gets green light for hotel in Colchester's Dutch Quarter
PREMIER Inn has been given permission to build an 85-bedroom hotel next to Colchester’s Castle Park.
Colchester Council’s planning committee has tonight approved the application by 12 votes to one.
Councillors said the three-and-a-half storey hotel on the former Royal Mail office site in the Dutch Quarter’s St Peter’s Street would help to boost the town’s economy.
