A meeting is being held in Falmouth this evening to give members of the public a chance to express their opinion on the controversial plans to build a Premier Inn in the town. The hotel would have 74 bedrooms, a restaurant and car parking facilities and would be sited on the Car Park Site, Campbeltown Way at Port Pendennis.

The meeting is being held at Falmouth School on Trescobeas Road and starts at 6pm. Those wishing to speak will be able to register their wish on arrival and will be called on in turn.

The aim is for councillors to hear from local people on all sides of the debate although no decision will be taken on the day. The planning applications will be considered by the Strategic Planning Committee at a future meeting, which will be webcast live on the Cornwall Council website, at County Hall in Truro on a later date.

Hundreds of people have so far objected to the construction of the new hotel. Previous comments on the Falmouth People site have included one from 'swanaround' saying: "Falmouth doesn't need a "Premier Inn". There's plenty of reasonably priced, good quality accommodation."

Tregenna House Hotel added: "There were over 250 objections to this last time. The council have been elected to represent their constituents views. So how do they not seem to realise that the majority are against it? Apparently, it was the most objections EVER RECORDED on the planning app register."
