Since losing their Judicial Review against the Inspector’s decision to preclude residential development on Swan Quay, in the middle of the town, the owners have resorted to unjustified devices to spoil the appearance of the waterfront, and turn it into a derelict site. The established Sailmaking business moved out when their costs became unsustainable.
This important waterfront will once again be left empty during the Nautical Festival, as a statement to the town and visiting craft that they hold in contempt, and especially Creekites, those with the Creek at heart, that they blame for spoiling their inappropriate plans.
Their lack of imagination prevents them from developing this important site in a way that is sympathetic to the creek and the town, and cannot consider any alternative to their planned exploitation by erecting 4 storey residential blocks.
What a shame…
