The Campaigners to Save the Sale Hotel were led to believe that the building could never be used again as a licenced premises for contractual reasons. Local residents were pleased that this would be the case. Following upon the news that an application has been made to the Local Authority, residents have approached Trafford Heritage Society to ask how this could happen. THS has offered to listen to these concerns and to gauge the weight of feeling against the Sale Hotel re-opening as a club. Some concern has already been expressed that a licenced club will cause an unacceptable level of noise nuisance.
