Latest news on the Haven campaign - 19 January 2019
The Chairman of Sandbanks Community Group has written an open letter to John Butterworth, owner of the Haven, Sandbanks and Harbour Hotels, publicly urging him to withdraw his current application to demolish the Haven Hotel and redevelop it as flats.
The letter points out that:
In addition, National Trust, The Environmental Agency and over 3000 people have registered formal objections.
SCG argues the application is bound to fail. It's time for a fresh approach.
Mr Butterworth is urged to think again and consider redeveloping the Haven site to continue as a hotel as it has been for over 160 years.
SCG chairman David Morley has written to over 50 senior stakeholders seeking their support to address future summer safety, traffic & environmental measures.
