Quayle will like it tho'

It's his kind of 'economic development'

Maybe we could make a care home out of it....? And shell out £500k for it to lie empty...

Is there basement parking there already? If not, then aren't they going to have to mine/quarry it out of the rock? 

There’s a void with storage under the function area. Not sure how much of the rest. Remember it was built as a posh country house, dead centre, then extended.. Suspect the original bit  had a cellar.

Quite what the point of building an hotel that is only 'operationally viable' is I do not know

I think we do know though. The first wave of the housing development is apparently needed because without it the hotel construction is not financially viable. A few years on, the hotel will then have 'proved' not to be operationally viable. Guess what happens then? Dandarisation will be complete.

The only acceptable quantity of residential development there is zero. If Dandara have bought a hotel plot on which they're incapable of developing a hotel, tough titty. They'll just have to demolish the existing mess. Then they can sell the land on (at, presumably, a substantial loss) to someone who can.

Sad post. This has to be built as one unit - have you bothered to read the plans?

Sad NIMBY, Sad!

It's called perception and experience. Not something either of you suffer from thankfully.

That being nobody. As nobody would be insane enough to develop a hotel out there in an Island where there is zero chance of filling it with enough tourists as our visitor strategy and proposition is rubbish. The guy doing the Mount Murray is going to lose his shirt on that as it’s a crazy project. The only sensible way of getting your money back there is apartments anything other than that you’re wasting your time as we don’t have a tourist economy and we don’t have many business visitors either.
