Scarborough's Moorings Hotel to be turned into family home
A Scarborough hotel is to be turned into a family home following its owner’s wish to retire.
Derek Ibbotson lodged an application with Scarborough Council earlier this year to turn the Moorings in Burniston Road into a private residence.
In the application, it stated that Mr Ibbotson “wants to retire” and change the use of the more than 70-year-old guesthouse, which currently has 12 rooms.
The new three-storey home would have six bedrooms, a library and a games room according to the plans lodged with the council.
Scarborough Council planners have now approved the plans following no objections being received during a public consultation.
Planners have insisted that all guesthouse signs must be removed from the building before it can be used as a dwelling.
