The planning inspectorate dismissed the appeal against Trafford’s planning refusal on the 212 bed hotel.
The inspector cited the main issues as:
(i) the living conditions of the occupiers of adjacent residential properties, in particular on Hornby Road, by way of visual impact and outlook;
(ii) highway safety, concerning the proposed parking arrangements and the parking provision for disabled persons;
(iii) the character and appearance of the area;and,(iv) the setting of a listed building, Trafford Town Hall.
This puts an end to this particular application, one would think, although the developers can always come back with a revised application. We would hope that it would not be as tall and made more of an accommodation for Disabled customers.
