The silent majority; Mailbag letters also appear online at www.examiner.co.uk/views-and-blogs/reader-letters Mailbag.
When a pub/hotel was on the site it attracted many more tourists to the tower than there are now and an inn even pre-dates the tower.
The Thandis must look at all the objections by the minority groups - some with tunnel vision - and convince all that the pounds 1m investment should go ahead.
If the application is rejected by the council then I do hope that the Thandis will appeal this decision and be given an opportunity to have their proposed development scrutinised by a more open-minded panel.
If totally unsuccessful, well let's pull the old, seldom-open Victoria Tower down and flatten and lock up the site forever!
