Apologies, I didn’t see this had been submitted by a reader yesterday before I added my own item, so this is the view of a gentleman called Thomas.
The old bus and coach station, on Lansdown Road, has been abandoned for a while! But it might not be for much longer… Travelodge have put a planning application to demolish the building and build a 70 bedroom hotel, with a car park with 30 spaces.
But, does Bude really need another hotel?
We already have a Premier Inn, and some lovely independent hotels and B&Bs. This would also increase traffic in the town centre.
Bude is slowly becoming a cloned town, with well known national chains.
So, if you don’t want to see Travelodge open in Bude, then please go to the Cornwall Planning Page, enter reference number PA19/01978, press comment and object, to give your view!
