Does anyone know what is happening with the vacant site opposite King John’s castle? Planning permission had been granted for a hotel, but they didnt proceed when they were told that the height could not exceed the height of the castle. I was passing recently and saw that several large shiny steel posts have been erected there… ????

The planning application is still active, however at least some ten new or renewed hotels have opened since 2002. I would be very surprised to see a hotel go up there now as the site might be too small to be economically viable with a lower height. Below the original drawing which was refused due to it’s height.
