As a trader in Lyme I am convinced of the on going damage caused by the empty Three Cups Hotel. Not just the loss of visitors, the life blood of oue economy but the terrible eyesore that the hotel is becoming. Are we or are we not the pearl of Dorset? The only thing that scares me more is the thought of tearing the high street apart with empty second homes.
