Premier Inn and Costa get planning permission

Work could begin on building a Premier Inn and Drive-Thru Costa on the Ashdown Business Park, near Uckfield, early in the new year.

Planning permission was given for the development by Wealden councillors yesterday and Chris Lawson, partner at Lawson Commercial, which is responsible for marketing sites on the business park said it might even be open this time next year.

The plan is to build a three-storey 80-bedroom hotel, with restaurant and bar, and a drive-through Costa at the entrance of the business park.

A report to councillors said the development would bring employment to the site and aid existing business by providing accommodation for their business contacts.
