Palmers reveal scaled-back plans for Three Cups

PALMERS Brewery has revealed scaled-back plans for the former Three Cups Hotel in Lyme Regis, which has stood empty for more than 30 years. 

Planning permission was granted for a major redevelopment of the derelict site in Broad Street in 2015. However, after initial work was carried out, engineers and development consultants found the proposed scheme raised some technical problems.

Palmers has now decided that a more practical solution for the redevelopment of the site is to reduce the scale of the project, whilst still maintaining the essential parts of the original scheme, namely the retention and refurbishment of the former hotel Broad Street, new apartments at the rear together with a signature restaurant and a number of beach hut-style letting rooms.

A revised planning application is being prepared and will be submitted shortly, with work planned to start in 2021.

Chairman and managing director of Palmers Brewery, John Palmer, said: “Following the success of the Pilot Boat project in Lyme Regis, we are really excited about the new plans for the Three Cups which maintain the essential historic elements of the property yet develop a restaurant and letting rooms of the highest modern standards to enhance the existing facilities in the town.

“The reduced size of the project will be of benefit to neighbours and the town as the project can be completed much quicker with significantly less disturbance to anyone. We are really keen to get started in earnest.”
