Durham Tees Valley Airport oppose new hotel plans

27.07.07

Plans for a new 80 bedroom hotel near Durham Tees Valley Airport are being recommended for approval - despite objections from the local regeneration agency and from the airport itself.

Northcare Developments have submitted outline proposals for the hotel on land north of Cleveland Motor Homes, near Middleton St George. Planning officers at Darlington Borough Council have recommended the application is given approval, even though both Tees Valley Regeneration and the owners of the airport, Peel Airports Group, have objected to the scheme.

OneNorthEast is also concerned the proposed development could undermine a similar plan for a 100 bedroom hotel and business park at the airport. This was recently given approval after the Secretary of State for Local Government and Communities decided not to call the matter in.

However, the council planning officer's report says government policy states that markets forces should determine the appropriateness of having a number of hotels in close proximity.

Local ward councillor and chairman of the parish council Doris Jones said: "The parish council didn't object to this because it's on a brownfield site. There's all these hotels with empty beds. It's a bit of a nimby attitude for the airport to take. They can't expect to monopolise all the hotels around it.'

The planning committee meets at 13:30 next Wednesday (August 1).
