Plans to transform a number of grade II-listed buildings on Oxford's historic St Giles into a hotel are set to move forward.
Numbers 49 to 51 St Giles have been earmarked for redevelopment. One of the properties, which is home to the Eagle and Child pub, is thought to date back to the 17 th century.
Under the plans, 20th century extensions at the rear of 49 and 51 St Giles would be removed and replaced with a single storey extension to the rear of number 49.
The use of the ground and first floor of 50 St Giles would be changed from a café to hotel reception, while the upper floors of 49 to 51 St Giles would be converted into six hotel rooms.
The scheme has been recommended for approval ahead of an Oxford City Council west area planning committee meeting on 12 November 2019.
A document filed ahead of the meeting said: "The proposed demolition of modern low quality extensions and the erection of a single storey restaurant extension and alterations to change the use of the café premises and the upper levels of the site to hotel accommodation are considered acceptable, in ensuring longevity of the designated heritage assets and long term viability for the business use."
