Not another hotel...

York Press: Not another hotel... Not another hotel...

I WHOLEHEARTEDLY agree with Alison Sinclair’s letter of December 4, regarding the Airspeed factory in Piccadilly.

I think the Air Museum proposal is a wonderful idea and I was looking forward to taking my grandsons there when it was completed.

Why on earth does Coun James Alexander think we need anther hotel? How many hotels do we have in York that are not fully booked in summer?

They have agreed to turn the old council offices into a hotel and now he wants another.

Wake up, Mr Alexander, and listen to the people you are supposed to represent.

Mrs M Watson, Beckfield Lane, York.

The writer is mistaken.
Coun Alexander has never said he thinks the site should be a hotel.
What has happened is that the site has been advertised, and there has been interest shown from several hotel chains.

Here is what Coun Alexander said "The Reynard’s Garage site is likely to become a four-star hotel with business conferencing facilities”.
The emphasis is on the word "likely."
The decision rests with the planning committee and there is nothing to stop Mrs. Watson or anyone else, objecting to the development if and when a hotel chain goes ahead with an application.
