Essendine Hotel could be turned into business units
An abandoned hotel - branded an eyesore- could well be demolished and replaced with small business units.
Ben Gunner, of the Bourne-based Alexandra Property Group, has applied to Rutland County Council to demolish the former Essendine Hotel. In the application, he intends to submit plans for light industrial units.
The application says the old 1,800 square foot hotel, which has been empty for 14 years, has fallen into disrepair and is economically unviable. Thus, the 0.58ha site should be cleared for 'safe and efficient redevelopment'.
