A few key differences to if it was DOI. It cost £124k, DOI would have spent £1.24m on it and taken 2 years to complete it.

The Richmond Hill project seems to have started about 6 years ago and is still being worked on

yes, the doi can't even get water off a steep hill in a suitable manner.

It is worse than bonkers, it is tantamount to criminal damage. When planning (or lack of it) goes badly wrong. Lessons should be learned.

An update on it, with a link to the petition..

Aye.... along the same lines as felling Elms! 

ETA: But I digress... didn't really mean to hijack the thread!

Went for a walk earlier, to see the sculpture in the, er, flesh. Not bad. Whilst there, a delightful little Yorkie terrier appeared and sat down in front of Maurice and stared at the boys, then jumped up and pissed all over Robin's foot. Cue guilty owner rapidly re-collaring said dog...

Went down there today and just can't see anything that is an improvement on what was there before. Why on Earth didn't they fix the services and then lay a proper tarmac surface? Possibly put the trams on the promenade walkway, still be plenty of safe room for peds. etc. ( Much the same as Brighton where the electric train lives happily and safely with all the holiday makers and locals with just a low fence separating them from each other.

That was one of the first plans Doc. Everyone seemed to think it was a good idea but then it was thrown out. There were so many plans and changes of plans that I couldn’t even tell you when it was. It feels as though from the interment camps to now I can’t remember anything in between. 😃
