Levelling Up Fund 3

The Fleece Hotel

The Fleece Hotel is located in the heart of Gloucester’s Cathedral Quarter on Westgate Street. This Grade I and II listed building dates from the twelfth century. It is owned by Gloucester City Council (GCC) but has been vacant since 2002. The building is of national historic significance, containing a Norman undercroft, formerly known as The Monk’s Bar.

The Levelling Up Fund will enable Phase 1 (2,170 sq m) of a high-quality mixed-use scheme to be developed, delivering a much needed 4-star boutique hotel plus conference and meeting facilities. The City Council has selected Dowdeswell Group Limited as its preferred development partner for this project. Managing Director of Dowdeswell Group, Rod Jenner, said: “This is brilliant news. We can now restore the Fleece to its former glory and prepare it for the next stage in its life.”

August update: The City Council's plans to bring the Fleece Hotel back to life have started. The first phase of enabling works has been completed for the Fleece hotel to establish further Information on the building.

Phase 2 will carry out next to address H&S issue identified before we move into the development phase. Further surveys are being conducted now that exposed further historic fabric.
