As a long term resident it makes me so sad and angry to think that The Alexandria Hotel could be demolished for yet another bland and ugly apartment block.

We've seen many changes in our area in the last decade and many beautiful old buildings have been torn down in the name of progress....I'm all for progress, but we need to have a balance with retaining history too. The Alex has been lovingly improved by it's current tenant and it's such a great place to visit whether you're a single person, with friends or as a family. When I had a baby a few years ago my local mothers group even used it as a meeting place when it was too cold to go to the parks. The staff could not have been more welcoming to a bunch of new mums who only ever ordered coffee and hot chocolates.

Please take the objections from people who live in the area seriously. We don;t want to lose this pub, there are far too few in the area anyway. As you pump more people into the area, you need to give them somewhere to meet, eat and socialise.
