    An artist's impression showing how the hotel will look
    The proposals will see an Ibis Styles hotel built on a vacant site on Hunters Row, north of the town centre.

    The hotel will help provide local jobs, improve the night-time economy and increase tourism, according to the application.

    It will see four full-time and 16 part-time jobs created.

    It will also make use of “largely redundant” retail space. Several businesses have moved out of premises in the north end of the town centre in recent years, leaving a number of empty retail units.

    Stafford business leaders and residents welcomed the plans when they first emerged.

    I dunno why this is taking so long, they pretty much unofficially gave the nod last summer. They need to get the wrecking ball out , and the scaffolding up.

    I would imagine they'll have a deal with the car park by Iceland. Also, it's only £1 to park overnight in any of the council car parks, so that's an option. Plenty of hotels in town centres operate that way.

    So glad this has been approved, it's a great use for an empty building

    There's an 'apartment' next door to Icon/Zanzibar/Top of the world (used to be the fancy dress shop) that you can rent by the hour! :bananafunk:

    It's waaaaaaaay too classy for Casa. Besides, what's wrong with doing it in the multi storey, like everyone else?

    One imagines that, with the modern trend to name children after the site of their conception, e.g., Brooklyn Beckham, etc., there would be a good few people around Stafford called "the fire doors at the side of the Odeon"..?

    Just looked - £75 per night. Rip off, you can get a premier inn for less than that, I think!
