Isle of Wight hotel to be converted to holiday centre

An Isle of Wight hotel may be converted into a holiday centre for the use of children who are affected by autism and their families.

A planning application has been submitted to convert the closed Hartland Hotel in Shanklin into a specialist facility, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

The 20-bed hotel has been empty for a year and significant work would need to be done in order for it to be ready to be used as a holiday centre.

A decision on the application will be made by the planning committee of the Isle of Wight Council and it is expected families from the mainland would be the main users of the facility.

Specialists such as Dr Viv Hinchcliffe, head of centres for specialist needs in the London area, are supporting the proposals.

The news provider also reports that the Sandpipers hotel in Freshwater Bay reopened on Friday (July 27th) after a sale to Isle of Wight hotels was completed for £370,000.
