A hotel operator has been signed up ahead of the planned £150m transformation of the grade II-listed Guildhall in Nottingham.

The unnamed company will be revealed in the coming months while planning applications for the derelict site are expected to be submitted in the late spring and early summer.

The proposed hotel would include 140 bedrooms as well as spa facilities and a restaurant.

Mark Bielby, the development director of Miller Birch, told Insider: "The hotel will be towards the top end of the quality scale and we expect a planning application to be submitted in the late spring. Our application for student flats and offices will be ready to be published around the early summer. We are still working on how many apartments to include in the scheme."

Nottingham City Council formerly occupied the building which was constructed in 1887, having previously been a magistrates' court, police station and fire station.

The authority was based at the Burton Street building between 1996 and 2010.
