Hotel worries stir residents


Share post:

Traffic, a window-to-the-sea and the proposed size of the structure are chief among the concerns of residents in Blue Waters and Cot Road in Christ Church, ahead of the second town hall meeting today addressing the Blue Horizon project.

There is a petition on website change.org named “Keep the Sea Window at Accra/Rockley Open”, which has attracted more than 3 000 signatures in just two days.

Residents said they had no problem with Blue Tourism Inc. renovating the hotel, but did not think it was necessary for it to go so high – ten storeys, according to developers.

Many of them said they would be attending the meeting this evening at Accra Beach Hotel to voice their concerns. (CA)
