Well, the plans to build new things in New Brighton may have a knock on efefct for other things, such as the Promenade Stages Rally held each year.

If the current plans go ahead, then this years may have been the last one to be held there.

We dont "Need" to build anything in those places, and most certainly dont need any more flats being built anywhere.

Where I live, Spital, has been absolutely ruined in the past 2 years, because theyve finished building 2 giant sets of flats in the area. No longer a nice quiet Hamlet...now its busy as, with quite a bad congestion problem.

Why do you think it's a waste? What would you do with it? People need space, otherwise they get psychotic. There tends to be more trouble in crowded situations, because humans are territorial animals. Let's keep all the open space we can.

I agree with Chris..

If I ever need a quiet moment to myself.. i head off to New Brighton..

Also, the quiet surroundings, coupled with the sea right next to it, just remind me of my Grandad.. somewere really nice to just go and connect or rememebr...

A big Supermarket, or swimming pool etc would ruin that atmosphere

We all need those places, Craig; I've got mine, & the older I get the more I use them.

aren't the dips reclaimed land, they were created by dumping loads of sand there (where there was originally water) to create storm barriers, and therefore can't be built on. Is this not correct.
