Airport hotel given green light

SOUTHEND BOROUGH COUNCIL has given the green light for a hotel on the Essex airport site close by the new railway station which is nearing completion.  A frequent train service to London’s Liverpool Street will be inaugurated once the two-platform station is commissioned next month.  The 131-room hotel will provide high quality facilities for airport passengers as well as for local businesses.  In an ambitious and innovative concept is has been designed to incorporate both 3-star facilities and a separate 5-star executive floor with 12 suites.  A new passenger building is also planned offering an integrated complex of station, airport terminal and hotel.  The Council’s decision to grant permission for a runway extension is currently subject to a judicial review.  www.southendairport.com
