The Dapatchi Group has applied to the authority to transform the Carlill in Royal Crescent into the flats, alongside building a five-story extension to the rear of the property.
Its submission to the council states: “The hotel that operated on the site for many years ceased to operate due to viability issues and has been vacant for a
a significant length of time.”
It adds: “The development will put the building to use and therefore prevent its deterioration and decay. The rear extension proposed is not prominent within the street scene, being on the rear elevation where other extensions and alterations to terraced properties have been built.”
There would be no affordable housing as part of the scheme, the plans state.
Whitby Town Council has not objected to the plans, though two members of the public have lodged their opposition with the borough council.
