There might actually be the basis of a good idea here - Derbyhaven was at one time intended to develop hence the construction of the breakwater - though the beach is probably gently sloping, hence its attraction to the Norse and early Derby Lords as a landing place, protected from South Westerlies, there may well be sufficient deep water to handle the smaller cruise ships

Derbyhaven dries out at low tide to the breakwater, so there's not the depth.

It would be nice if they'd spend a bit of cash on the runway so that planes can land in a bit of fog before they start splashing the cash on a posh terminal.

Man down the pub this weekend told me the airport bosses are planning to move the fuel farm and relocate the airport fire station. I'm sure they have a very pressing reason to spend millions doing that...

flatten king bills and janets corner so we can get an airbus 380  in with those 2.5 million passengers   ?

From what I hear you are not a million miles away on the demolition bit. The flattening of KWC should prove interesting though, isn't there a covenant on the property/land?

by moving the fire station they can build one with big enough doors so next time they buy a new appliance it will actually fit into the building.

..with storage for the bag of bits left over after they put it together.

 

Land sale, simples, sell it off for development, along with the hatchery and those old buildings.

Can’t see the CM or the TM signing off to demolish their old school. But then perhaps if it happens it will show us who is really running the show. More likely the fools at the DOI and neither the CM or TM!

KWC needs a lot spending on it, if you walk round the place, the outside is falling apart.
