    The building is a complete eyesore and needs demolishing.

    I believe that is the plan, but disposing of asbestos is a costly business. I had to have a roof on our stables up in Scotland replaced, and the old one was Asbestos, it cost me a fortune to get rid of it.

    From memory they had a lot of problems with the old building that was infront of the station and that was much smaller.
    I imagine the timescales for complete demolition of the BHS building will take a lot longer than planned.

    All I can say is that the horses I had were the only thing keeping me sane when living up there.

    Is that Greek restaurant 'The Agean' I think it was, still on Anlaby Rd? That was a lovely restaurant. I couldn't understand how well they did and in such a ****ty location.

    They say if you build it they will come. It would be good to see some investment down there.

    Very few people go rooting around at the back of their hotel though Chazz...you may be the exception.
    Fine on Anlaby Rd there at night and a hotel will help anyway

    Rooting around!!
    So if you stay in a hotel in New York and you’re not facing Central Park you don’t go there??!
    Turn left on anlaby rd and you e got nothing to see until you come to the delights of coltman st
    Everything behind it or turning right on midland st is a dump full of prozzys n druggies
    Fact

    A hotel built on that site is preferable to what's there now, far preferable.

    My point was that if you stay there you’ll be staying there for it’s proximity to the city centre, or the train station, so you’d only head in that direction

    the other things you mention are just an added bonus...

    Dodgy areas which you rightly point out like where the old NY hotel was are really only improved by getting rid of these derelict areas which attract the worst kind of our society. Building a hew hotel and the like can only help to rectify these types of problem areas, surely?

    Hessle Road around Boulevard's your best bet.

    Somebody told me...

    The UK city with the fastest broadband revealed

    The roll-out cost £85m, but has brought almost £500 million to the region's economy, the firm behind the project says.


    Hull has the fastest internet connection in the UK after announcing it has city-wide full fibre broadband coverage.

    KCOM, the company behind the city's seven-year roll-out said around 200,000 homes and businesses in the city and surrounding area now have access to ultrafast speeds of 1Gbps.

    It means Hull is "the first full fibre city in the UK", KCOM said, something enjoyed by only 8% of the country overall.

    And yet KCOM still have no date on when I’ll get fibre and I’m only a couple of miles into ER in one of the West Hull suburbs. It’s a pain in the arse - the current connection is good enough to Skype, but only if no one else in the house is using the internet for anything else, which makes working from home tricky. Teenage ranting about “terrible lag” when gaming. Spinning circles watching iPlayer, etc
