I hope the Ilfracombe councillors and D Hirst paid from their own pockets for this event. What a hope. When it was advertised this obscene lump of metal,[ to many a porn object, with a pair of scales pushed up the posteria what else can it be,] was to be lit up I thought it was to be blown up, if so I would have gone. Unfortunatly not. Only those wanting to toady to Hirst in one way or another wants this "thing". Its not free as council tax has to be used not only to clean it, but light it up and security. Who is paying for it to be taken down and taken away in nearly 20 years. As no councillor has answered this question, I suspect a huge rise in council tax will be wanted. The councillors, planners and NDC have let Ilfracombe itself remain so dirty, with buildings falling down, rubbish and dog mess,So much so that the start of another small town is to be built neat the supermarket. This leaves empty houses,shops,derelect hotels to fall down as they have done for years. Im surprised the various councils allowed this monstrocity as befor the planners have stipulated buildings etc be "in keeping" ie Victorian style , very strange! This new complex planned is not needed as neither council clears drains to stop such severe flooding in the area so where is the money coming from to do the upkeep of it, they cant even take interest in the town, but its Ilfracombe that needs the money. There is plenty of buildings that could be refurbished and the office blocks the NDC are selling could be converted to council flats.Green land should not be used.
