IN JANUARY this year, I wrote querying the lack of a hotel strategy for the city.

Since then it appears that proposed hotel developments have not come forward as expected, thus suggesting that the market has indeed reached saturation point.

While criticising others for not producing such a strategy, the council leader James Alexander said in his letter of January 9: “I am pleased to say the strategy should be complete by March”.

Like many I was foolish enough to think that this meant March this year.
