The Horse and Groom

19th November 2013 by Phil Comments Off on The Horse and Groom

The Royston Liberal Democrat Party committee are unhappy to note that an appeal against the refusal of planning permission for development of the old Horse and Groom site on the A505 just outside town has failed. Hence, the current building on the site is likely to remain a decaying ruin for some time yet.

While we obviously wish to see a sympathetic and appropriate development on the site, we are even more keen to see the eyesore that currently greets new arrivals from the west of town knocked down and replaced. A hotel development on the site could also help resolve Royston’s current unfortunate shortage of accommodation for business visitors. We are pleased to find ourselves in agreement with both Royston Council and the town’s Chamber of Commerce on this matter. Unfortunately, the site, and responsibility for this planning process, doesn’t rest with anyone in Royston; we have to thank South Cambridgeshire District Council for the situation.
