Objections raised over major expansion of popular Lake District hotel

Jan 23, 2020

Colton Parish Council is objecting to the plans by The Swan Hotel at Newby Bridge due to concerns over access while proposed work is undertaken on the three-storey extension.

The hotel wants to create a new wing to house a swimming pool, spa and 26 hotel rooms. A planning application – which also includes car parking and landscaping – has been lodged with the Lake District National Park Authority.

While Colton Parish Council says it is not opposed to the actual expansion of the hotel, it believes its plans do not acknowledge the traffic and parking issues construction will cause.
