Firstplan work with Radisson Edwardian Hotels on their properties across London including, obtaining consents for extensions, alterations and external seating areas. At the 5* May Fair Hotel Firstplan acted on a scheme to provide an extension fronting Landsdowne Row to provide additional bedroom accommodation as part of a major refurbishment of the hotel. This involved detailed discussions regarding the retention of the theatre space within the hotel.
Firstplan subsequently advised on an extension at ninth floor level to provide additional bar and dining facilities for hotel guests. For this latter scheme, detailed pre-application discussions were the key to achieving a successful result given that there was an informative on the previous consent which advised that the Council were very unlikely to consider future applications for extensions favourably.
