As we have recently read in the Gazette the New Angel Hotel now has new owners, the pub chain JD Wetherspoon.
I am sure that it will take some time for plans to be passed for the renovation of this important building.
In the meantime the building has been scaffolded at great expense.
It is such a shame that at the same time as this work was carried out the owners neglected to clear and tidy the frontage to the building which behind the security fencing is a real eyesore of old broken planters, electrical cables and general rubbish. It would take very little time and money for this to be resolved.
Clearly to leave the site looking like this is unacceptable especially through the busy summer months, Whitby residents and visiting tourists deserve better.
