Proposals for a new 45 bedroom hotel and restaurant on a Cornwall landfill site will go before a planning committee on August 13.
The controversial Carkeel landfill site, which is owned by Downderry Construction Ltd, has already been the subject of a failed bid by Sainsbury’s supermarket in October 2008.
Residents of Carkeel, with Saltash Town Council’s support, are set to try to block this attempt as well over fears of increased traffic and noise to the surrounding area.
The hotel would sit 50 metres from the busy A388, and it be fitted out with a restaurant, bar, meeting rooms, 74 parking spaces and new access routes for vehicles and pedestrians.
In the face of mounting protest, planners have insisted that an ancient listed milestone located on the site will be safe from the new proposals.
