    New hotel and McDonald's near Ricoh refused

    Interesting how they have refused permissions for a hotel next to the Ricoh due to its location being in an ‘out of centre’ site.

    How does this impact on Wasps "plans" to build a hotel on the car park?

    They did this to another hotel, think it was up on Binley Road, and the suggestion at the time was it was done to avoid distracting from a potential new hotel on car park C.

    Although its difficult to see how they can reject this and then wave one through on car park C. Wasps option on car park C was only until November 2019 and required them to get planning permission to take up the option so without the council doing them another favour that one isn't happening either.

    They are an absolute joke, be interesting if this is taken to appeal. They are utterly shameless.

    So, if traffic etc is an issue - what did they actually expect when they tried to imply that CCFC not having plans to regenerate the wider area was a bad thing? They tie themselves in knots

    To be fair they've eased the traffic by evicting 12,000 football fans from the area.

    Exactly, surely a hotel on the car park would generate more traffic too?

    Will be interesting how easy Wasps would have it if they applied for something there now.

    If Marriott hotels are really interested in the site, they're a pretty big outfit and could take this further. In fact, they're ginormous.

    Unbelievable that the council would reject the redevelopment of a brownfield site by a well know well regarded brand.

    A few flags shirts and free tickets and they could build a brothel there and the council wouldn’t care

    I suspect the council are trying to get Marriott to look at the Car Park C for Wasps

    Tracey Miller who is partner of Martin Yardley deupty leader of Council who is about to "retire" for a large bounty . Surely no WASPs connections here?

    The people who own the own the site are big CCFC supporters too

    What are the odds on an application going in for a Marriott hotel on car park C? Wasps seemed to be struggling to get anyone interested, now they know Marriott are would it surprise anyone if they tried to hijack it.

    The appeal now just needs to come back saying it is going to be a hotel for students

    Can’t see the need for a hotel? Apart from the occasional concert being held at the Ricoh, who would ever use it?

    Now a Mc Donald’s next to the Ricoh wouldn’t have an effect in the sale of food at the Ricoh would it? The council wouldn’t want Wasps to lose more money by having competition for the over priced shyte served up at matches?

    Surely given their reasons for rejecting this, I cant see how they could agree to one on car park c.

    Wasps are struggling full stop. Where would they raise the funds for anything? They owe enough at high rates as it is.

    I would use it but only if Wasps are not involved.

    But aren’t there already hotel rooms at the Ricoh itself. Surely they can’t be so full every night that there is a need for an additional hotel next door?

    (I understand in your situation the Ricoh hotel is still owned by wasps, but you see my point)

    So why were they on about building one on the car park opposite?

    Did they not say they can’t get many exhibitions there due to lack of hotels, it is more likely that the nec gets most as it has loads more around it to do, airport next door and a real train station that runs more than once an hour but if they want to believe it’s a hotel issue let them build it.

    The Hilton in Walsgrave does ok yet it is not in a great spot depends on what facilities you have would have thought this is a better place.

    That's interesting.

    So she chose to reject it behind closed doors rather than a planning committee.

    There must be a demand I guess because they would’ve done more research than me but I just can’t believe the hotel that is already within the Ricoh would be fully booked every night!

    I think the point is that they backed the one on Car Park C that Wasps were apparently going to do...
