A planning application has been submitted to demolish a Marston’s pub in North Yorkshire so a care home can be built on the site.

The proposal, submitted by Crown Care at the beginning of March, is to knock down the Carlton Tavern, York, and its associated six-bedroom hotel, to build a three to four-storey care home with 22 parking spaces, four cycle racks and associated landscaping.

Informal discussions have taken place with City of York Council to ensure the proposed care home delivers the services for the growing population of older people in York. A decision on the site is expected to be made in June this year.

Care home proposals include a café/bar, cinema, hair and beauty salon, gym and therapy room.

Marston’s, which is currently expanding its estate overall, owns more than 1,500 pubs up and down the country, employs 13,000 people and operates five breweries.

The pubco is increasing its pub sites with mainly new builds and, at the beginning of the month, it told The Morning Advertiser​ it was likely to open more than 30 new pubs this year. Last year, it opened 22 new pubs and bars, creating 1,000 new jobs.

Marston’s has been contacted for a comment, but has not yet replied to The Morning Advertiser​.
