Crowne Plaza proposes budget hotel next door

Reading Borough Council has received an application which could see a 132-room budget hotel built near the River Thames, in the car park of the Crowne Plaza.

It would be a five-storey building with a reception area, a café/restaurant, meeting rooms and a small gym on the ground floor.

If permitted, the development would see a reduction in the hotel’s existing 200 space car park to 119 spaces. The developer also states it will provide 33 new trees in the plan – a net gain of 17, and claims that there is a relatively low risk of flooding on the site.

Reading Borough Council is holding a consultation into the plans, which can be viewed and commented on at

Since this was published the planning application has been withdrawn.
