The ongoing saga of The La Touche Hotel building being saved has taken a turn for the better, with developers Crimson Lane Limited now withdrawing their application to have the Greystones landmark demolished.
A campaign started by Dec Shaw last November saw the town rallying together once more to save the hotel.
With the planning for 22 new houses and a terrace of five town houses still standing, Greystones Cathaoirleach, Derek Mitchell, has written to Crimson Lane Limited requesting they meet with Greytones’ town councillors to explain their conservation plan and timetable.
Here’s that letter…
La Touche Hotel 17/1323
Myself and the other Greystones Municipal District Councillors are very concerned with the condition of the building. In spite of numerous plans it has only got more derelict especially recently. I would like to meet with you and hear what you are going to do with the most prominent building in the town.
This could be at our normal monthly meeting on the 27th March which is held in public, which would be my preference. Alternatively it could be at a non public meeting, where the other 5 Councillors would be invited, either held before it or at another time to be agreed.
I would be grateful if you could E-Mail me or phone to try to arrange this.
It was mentioned to me today that an inquisitive group of young people had gone into the building climbing up ladders within it and that it was not difficult to enter. This is dangerous.
Sincerely Derek Mitchell Cathaoirleach Greystones Municipal District
