Sutton Bridge hotel: South Holland District Council won't risk taxpayers' cash
Sutton Bridge looks like being stuck with its derelict, fire-damaged Bridge Hotel with South Holland District Council refusing to accept it is “dangerous”.
Glass has several times fallen from upstairs windows and hit the ground, but the district council is more likely to ask the county council to close the pavement than step in to sort out the building.
District portfolio holder for place Coun Roger Gambba-Jones said council building control surveyors define a dangerous building as one “in immediate danger of falling down”, although they accept The Bridge Hotel is “at risk”.
