Most readers of our website will have spent many a time at the Westley Hotel over the years. It has been a landmark in our area for as long as we can remember. Family gatherings, nights out, social events.. Charity dinners.. the Westley has been a wonderful venue for local people to come together. The Neighbourhood Forum were very sad to see that the owner has decided to close the venue and has now put in a planning application for 33 more rooms. There is nothing in the application about using the space as a venue in future and there is no extention to the building, so it sounds like the plan is to a lot more people into the same space.. so of course there are serious concerns about this plan.
