Demolition work has started on the former Carpetright store in Foss Islands Road with a section of footpath closed until Saturday 27th November.

Plans were approved to build a new Premier Inn with restaurant, bar, and 188 bedrooms in February – the developer previously stated that there is demand for more hotel rooms in the city.  The existing Premier Inn on Blossom Street is normally 98 percent fully booked.  Spokesman for the hotelier, Chris Argent, said the hotel will bring 55 jobs to the city.
