A meeting requested by Paul Goggins MP with Campaign Leaders and the owner/developer and scheduled for 27.08.09, has been cancelled today by the developer. The Save the Sale Hotel Campaign Leaders are very disappointed by this move because they genuinely wish to involve local residents and stakeholders in the future of the building. This meeting would have given everyone the opportunity to discuss the prospects for the site.
Campaign Leaders have been unable to make contact with the owner/developer, despite several attempts. It is regarded as unhelpful that nothing has been disclosed about the owner/developer’s original intentions for the site of the building, or his plans now that the Sale Hotel has acquired legal protection. The cancellation of this meeting is thought to be even more detrimental to real attempts of progress by the Campaign Team.
