I take it you are referring to the building that had Ravel. I made some enquiries on behalf of someone who wanted access to take photos. I took photos of it before the scaffold went up.

Don't ever remember any talk of it becoming a hotel. But may be wrong. The scaffold was up so that the owner could make the building safe as the upper floors where dangerous and it also resulted in Ravel having to move out.

If there was a planning application in recent years it would still be active as the consent lasts for five years. Maybe there will be information on the Council's planning site.

Would that be the new building they are starting in Queen Street Norrie?

There usually aren't any secrets just the fact that people don't see the planning application which will usually provide all the detail you want and then some once a scaffoler gets to add their little bit

You used to be able to ask to view the planning applications for a minimal cost if the buildings use once completed was ever in question. I dare say this is still the case as most planning applications need to go on public record with the only real exception of MOD and Police Stations but then we never really question a police stations intended use or layout unless we are up to no good.

Not sure about the current status of it but the council were moving toward an online free access planning application site. The reports are available as a matter of public record and give all the detail you need.

There was a local building in my area that workmen told locals was being turned into everything from a cinema to a primark. It was a B&M shop. Never trust construction workers of scaffolders to tell you the truth
