Campus design hideous

I THINK that the design for the Waveney Campus project is hideous, my six-year-old granddaughter could have done better.

The design looks like something from the former Soviet Union in the 1960s.

The design looks like something from the former Soviet Union in the 1960s. It is totally bland and uninspired.

I would like to know why Waveney District Council did not think about relocating the Town Hall to the former Shell Base, in Commercial Road, as it is a fairly large structure with room to expand. There is also room on the site for a new Cefas building; the site is quite large going all the way along the shore of Lake Lothing up to the railway footbridge at the bottom of Normanston Park.

If the problem is road access why not put in a level crossing across the railway where the road goes to Wickes and Lidls?

This idea would save council tax payers millions of pounds which could be spent in other ways.

The plans for the housing development at the former Brooke Marine peninsula include yet another marina, just what the town does not need. Can you imagine weekends in the summer with all the yachts and boats leaving and entering Lake Lothing, the bridge will be going up and down like a yo-yo.

The marinas should be located in the former trawl docks, that way the bridge would not be worked so hard, especially now that a fortune is being spent on its overdue overhaul.
