Travelodge Deal – Solicitor’s Challenge

Travelodge Deal – Solicitor’s Challenge

Regular readers will be familiar with the furore over the Executive Decision of SBC Commercial Director Richard BRADLEY (known, somewhat disparagingly, as ‘The Brighton Bin Man’ – a reference to his past experiences in waste management at Brighton & Hove City Council) – to purchase a run-down hotel at an inflated price and lease it to an apparently failing hotel chain.

Thanks to the public-spirited actions of a number of Scarborough Borough Councillors, I am now able to reproduce a (suitably redacted) letter from one of the North of England’s pre-eminent law firms, lodging a Formal Complaint on behalf of a prominent client.
