PLANS have been lodged with Swansea Council to convert the former White House Hotel building into five flats.

A single-storey extension at the rear to replace the existing conservatory is part of the proposal.

The former hotel, on the corner of Nyanza Terrace and Eaton Crescent, lies within the Ffynone and Uplands Conservation Area.

Architects on behalf of applicants Surrey-based Real Estate Purchase Group said no work was proposed to the roof or external walls.

A heritage impact assessment said:

“From a heritage perspective, the proposed development provides an opportunity to secure a sustainable future for the site, having been vacant and declining in condition for a number of years.

“The proposed development will retain the majority of the original elements of the façade that remain following the remedial works.”

The White House Hotel had 14 beds and was one of a declining number of small, independently-run hotels in Swansea before it closed.

It is a short stretch up from a former nightclub, Mozart’s, which has also closed and could be turned into flats. Council planning officers are assessing an application by developer Intergalactic Property Holdings to convert the building into nine flats, although the Walter Road venue could still have a future as a nightclub, according to planning documents
