UK: An application has been lodged to transform a former asylum in two luxury hotels

An application has been lodged to convert a former Victorian asylum in Denbigh into two luxury hotels.

Businessman Lawrence Kenwright applied to Denbighshire Council to turn North Wales Hospital into two hotel properties. The planning application also states that housing would be developed within the building.

The hospital housed around 200 patients before it closed in 1996. The application states such a project could generate 450 jobs for hospitality employees.

Kenwright said: "We believe Signature Living's plans for Denbigh represent the best possible outcome on all levels - the local community, the local economy, inward investment and job creation."

This proposal is one of two being considered by the council. The other is a residential proposal from the Prince's Regeneration Trust.
