The Fitzwilliam Hotel in Belfast city centre has been granted permission to expand.

The approval from Belfast City Council's Planning Committee will allow the hotel on the corner of Great Victoria Street and Grosvenor Road to provide 30 additional bedrooms and new gym and spa facilities, as well as a roof garden.

It also will involve reconfiguration of some of the hotel's layout and an upgrade of the main entrance.

The Fitzwilliam Hotel was named business hotel of the year in October for its first-class facilities and service.

The city's tourism industry was given a further boost with the granting of permission for the conversion of an office building at 42-48 Howard Street into 55 serviced short-stay visitor suites.

Planning permission was also granted for the demolition of the existing building on the corner of Arthur Street and Chichester Street and its replacement with a new eight-storey mixed use development, including retail outlets and offices.
