Celtic Football Club submits plans for Glasgow hotel and museum complex

WCN Editorial Team 12 Jun 2017 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Celtic Football Club has submitted plans for a new hotel and museum complex next to its stadium in Glasgow, Scotland.

The project, anticipated to lead to the creation of up to 120 jobs, will involve the construction of a five-storey hotel, ticketing facility, a restaurant and a cafe/bar.

Planners Muir Smith Evans said in a statement: “The proposed development will result in the creation of some 100 to 120 permanent full and part-time jobs and will contribute positively to the regeneration of the Clyde Gateway area.”

"The direct creation of over 100 new employment opportunities will be a major boost to the area and will clearly contribute towards the key planning aim of achieving sustainable economic growth.”

The new hotel would be located outside the main stand of Celtic Park and in proximity to the Emirates Arena. In 2013, plans for a £44m hotel development on a Celtic park facing site were scrapped.

"By locating the proposed hotel immediately beside the stadium and arena pressure on the local transport network will be reduced, particularly at times of peak movement. Experience elsewhere also demonstrates that hotel restaurant and cafe/bar facilities adjoining a football stadium can help to spread the timing of trips over a greater time period avoiding peak periods," the statement added.
