Residents object to Derbyhaven development.

It's never been a site for permanent residences

Why should it be now?

It was once a successful hotel, and there were other hotels and guest houses in the area at one time. I'm not sure that the threat to the wildlife and dark skies is totally valid when we have an airport on one side and a lighthouse on the other? Not enough business for a hotel to be viable alone but planning is dependent on some kind of development which includes a hotel.

The developers need to put in a fresh application.

Close off the inlet from the sea, kids boating lake, pedalo or two, water slides, bouncy castles, wet T-shirt competitions, beer and chicken wing BBQ's, Jet ski circuit. - they'll soon get their apartments.

Yep, make it an urban zone

Concrete over the lot of it

This proposal neither increases the footprint nor will result in the loss of land.

It will replace a rotting, rat-infested eyesore with a nice facility which hopefully will be financially viable.

There's already a long established golf course and clubhouse there which was part of the existing hotel, I think it's an over reaction. If the island can't offer facilities such as this we will never become a tourism destination.

A 40 apartment & 40 bedroom hotel development won't increase the existing footprint?

You're normally more sensible than that
