Mr Banks, whose Blackpool Promotions company owns a number of hotels in the resort, bought the Grosvenor in March.

The proposed refurbishment would see its 47 bedrooms transformed to 30 suites to become part of the Ruskin, which Mr Banks bought in May 2017.

The work will also include a 250-seat cabaret venue and a basement spa complex.
