It's not known at this stage who will run the hotel and more detailed designs still need to be approved before any building work can start.

Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Cllr Malcolm Greer, said: “I’m really pleased that this hotel has been granted planning permission because it will be great for the town. Fifty-six full-time jobs will be created thanks to this permission being granted, which is even better news during these recessionary times.”
