The former Ilford Police Station could become a 10-storey ‘aparthotel’ if developers are given the green light.

Chand Developments Ltd has applied to Redbridge Council for outline planning permission to build the new 70-unit accommodation at the empty Ilford Hill site.

The developers plan to retain the current police station building as part of the new hotel, which would have self-contained apartments with kitchens and bathrooms as well as a small commercial unit.

But the development will not include any on-site parking for customers or staff, with two disabled parking spaces available “by arrangement”.

And while the application does not specify the number of jobs it could create, it said: “The development will meet the well-established and increasing demand for both commercial and tourist accommodation, both of which are already seeing growth with the increased activity in East London.

“It will allow increased employment, and add to the economic activity in the town centre.”
