Notice given of planning application for apartments next to Royal Hotel

* The notice on the fencing next to the Royal Hotel.

A notice advising the public of the intention of a company to apply for planning permission to convert the extension to the Royal Hotel into 12 residential apartments has been posted nearby.

And it says the public are invited to have their say on the proposal.

The Grade II Listed hotel dating back to 1752, which stands on the corner of Castle Street and Bridge Street, has been closed since 2019.

In late 2022 Denbighshire County Council approved a planning application, submitted the previous March in the name of Matt Jones of MAVI Properties Ltd, to transform the Royal into a “destination hotel”.

The application allowed for the demolition of the original existing extension, the erection of a four-storey extension to the side and rear, including health spa, and additional hotel accommodation.

Now, a four-panel notice, with illustrations of various aspects of the plan, has been posted on the fencing between the extension and Riverbanc.

It says: “Notice is hereby given that Mavi Royal Ltd are intending to apply for a full planning application for conversion and extension of part of hotel to form 12 residential apartments.”

It goes on to explain that the development “offers a mixture of six one-bedroom and six two-bedroom apartments”.  

The notice adds: “The project involves separating the 1970 extension into apartments and keeping the original hotel as a hotel, bar and restaurant.”

The notice, in the name of Ruthin-based Ty Architecture, has been published, it says, under the Town and Country Planning Order for Wales, for publicity and consultation before applying for permission.

And it goes on: “The notice gives the opportunity to comment directly to the developers prior to the formal submission of the planning application to DCC. Any subsequent planning application will be published by the relevant LPA [local planning authority] and any comments provided in response to the notice will not prejudice your ability to make representations to the LPA on any related planning application. Any comments submitted may be placed on public file.”

The notice says that any comments on the proposal should be sent by post to: Ty Architecture, 15a Clwyd Street, Ruthin, LL15 1HF, or by email to:  by April 10, 2024.

It adds that the plans can be viewed at, or paper copies can be inspected at the architects’ address and that requests for email copies should be sent to:
