7. New Build

The Secretary outlined the plans for the new build at Quorn. 10 new houses were to be built on the site currently occupied by the Lodge. It was estimated that this would bring in a rental income of £85k per annum. At the hotel, there would be an additional 25 rooms and the extension of the existing function room (the Goodacre Suite).

There had been difficulties with the initial architect.

There would be an extra £130k increase on the extension of the function room.
