Travelodge has a number of preferred architects who have been working with us for several years and are fully aware of our requirements and specification. Whilst we do not insist that they are used for any developer-led scheme, between them they have designed a considerable number of our hotels and you may wish to take advantage of their expertise.

Planning Consultants

Nick Jenkins MRICS of Smith Jenkins is retained by Travelodge to provide planning consultancy advice in connection with all of Travelodge’s development projects. He is also advising Travelodge on the Community Infrastructure Levy.

Nick can provide initial advice to landowners, developers and funders on the planning feasibility of including a Travelodge hotel in any scheme and act as planning consultant on developer-led schemes, progressing to application and approval. This includes scoping and identifying, at the outset, the key technical issues involved in supporting a planning application for any site.

Should Travelodge’s developer partners already have a planning team in place, Smith Jenkins is retained by Travelodge to work alongside this team, guiding them with their knowledge of the Travelodge product, related planning issues and precedents, through their extensive experience in Travelodge development.

Nick Jenkins has over 15 years’ experience in delivering Travelodge projects and has overseen the delivery of over 250 planning permissions. These include those for standalone hotels, changes of use of existing buildings and hotels forming part of wider mixed-use schemes, in city and town centres, edge-of-centre sites and out-of-centre locations. Permissions have been secured in historic and sensitive locations, including the city centres of Bath, Chester, Chichester, Edinburgh, Epsom, Harrogate, Liverpool, London Greenwich, London Richmond, London Twickenham, St Albans, Windsor and York and edge-of-centre sites in Cambridge, Durham, Lincoln, Oxford, Marlow and The City of London. A number of these schemes have included the conversion of listed buildings.
