Owners of the Great Yorkshire Showground say they're "delighted" after a new hotel was granted planning permission.

The four-storey Roomzzz hotel will be built on the site, housing 98 rooms.

The planning application had previously been turned down last year.

Nigel Pulling, Chief Executive of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, said: "We are delighted that planning permission has been granted for Roomzzz which will really enhance our offering at the showground.

"From our visitors and competitors at the Great Yorkshire Show, to delegates and exhibitors for the Yorkshire Event Centre and Pavilions of Harrogate, the addition of 98 rooms for overnight accommodation will take us up to the next level."
