Letters: Feedback From Last Month’s Feature On Seafront Developments, Written By
 Valerie Paynter

Published by on Wednesday, 21 October 2009No Comment

As a local resident and member of Brighton Sailing Club, I cannot but agree with Valerie Paynter’s case against ”i360″ and “Brighton O”.  Brighton & Hove City Council has gone on quite long enough with central government’s accent on alcohol-fuelled “cheap and nasty”.  It has brought no benefit to the nation at large and certainly not to this city.  The process has run its course and councillors should understand that ”i360″ and “Brighton O”, even before they get off the ground, belong to a decaying era whose buzz words like “pro-active” and “joined-up thinking” will soon go the way of T-Rex.

These tacky and meretricious developments, the one resembling a bog-standard pin and the other a rolled-up condom minus the teat, do not even have the merit of being aesthetic.  They do not even begin to approximate Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower for looks.

In passing, I should like to wish Stella McCrickard of the best in her fight to conserve our chalk cliffs at the Marina from the commercial intents of Explore Living.
