Moorlands should be jewel in Whitby’s crown

Regarding the application to Scarborough Borough Council to knock down this hotel and replace with houses.

We have used this hotel for many years and can vouch for wrong statements made in the article as reported by Emma Spencer, Friday 28 October.

1 There are en-suite facilities.

2 The town is not 30 minutes away.

I would say that a hotel in the position as the Moorlands should be one of the jewels in the crown for Whitby being attractive with wonderful aspects with walks going in north and south directions.

How very sad to lose this for the desires of business concerns to do with housing.
