I hope Stevenage Borough Council will not grant Bluebird Holdings planning permission for a hotel on the Manulife site. I feel we have enough hotels in the town already, and with housing such a premium surely some dwellings would be more helpful to the inhabitants of Stevenage.

Housing should be the priority.

Incidentally the artist's impression of the future design reminds me of a prison and is not at all attractive.
