Developers Al Mubarakla Ltd released details of their proposal for a 242 room, four star hotel, shop, bar and restaurant last week.

A spokesman said: "These plans will re-develop a vacant site and create new employment opportunities for local people. We hope that these exciting proposals for the area will soon become a reality."

The listed site currently hosts the annual London International Tattoo Convention.

A decision from THC is expected later in the year.
