It seems like Southport may get yet another new hotel.

Developers have put in an application for planning permission for a hotel and retail complex along the north side of Coronation Walk in the town centre.

This news comes as the opening of the Travel Lodge on the old Cheshire Lines Station has been delayed.

Local Councillor Tony Dawson says:

“There is many a slip between planning permission and something actually being built and operating.

But Southport seems to have been bucking the trend over the past few years in the hotel  and restaurant fields.

Contrast this to what has been happening to Blackpool.
