The application for the spa, restaurant, penthouse apartment and boutique hotel was unanimously approved by councillors at at City Hall yesterday.

The complex will be on the vacant site of the former ticket office at the bus station, located on the corner of the station entrance.

The proposal was put forward by Dennis Bacon, who has previously said the development could open next year.
