Plans for a new hotel and apartments which will form part of the regeneration of a Kent seaside town have been unveiled.

The 60-bed hotel and 18 serviced apartments are planned for the Rendezvous site on the pier in Margate.

Space for car parking and a public area would also be built alongside the seven-floor building.

The site, which is next to the harbour and Margate Old Town, is owned by Kent County Council (KCC).

The plans by Guy Hollaway Architects are on display at the Thanet Gateway until 10 October.

A planning application is expected to be submitted in the autumn, KCC said.
