Although they won't be able to stop it forever, I don't think it needs a radical change - I mean, it's not as if it's particularly quiet of a weekend at the moment, is it?

That said - the area is starting to look a little "tired".

As long as they preserve the character, the structure can be improved on.

Coastal communites are not what they were and never will be, so something needs to be done to provide them with sustainable economies, so that local people can continue to afford to live there if they want to. Seaside villages are in danger of becoming ghost towns where all properties are holiday homes unless there is economic growth in these areas.

the marina thats being proposed is needed, to eliveate the lack of moorings for residents or people that live near by.
the moorings at the moment on the other side of the river are two boats moored together and you have to move some one elses boat b4 you can move your own.

its not busy in the town no but its hugly busy in the water and i think a bigger marina would be a benifit.

I've only been to Whitby once as a day trip when we were staying in York. I have NEVER seen so many people in my life and this from a person who was in central London on millenium eve. You just couldn't move it was really hideous. We had the worst fish and chips we ever had anywhere too. The only good bit was the ruined castle on the hill.

I've told this story a few times (on moblog at least once) and I've been assured it is a wonderful place....Bro A, my North of England bro holidays there every year and loves it.

I went there in August, maybe I should try going there off season.....

Edit: BS has just corrected me. It's an Abbey not a castle..

ah, a marina is it? there are plans to build a marina at Pembroke Dock too. There is already a marina over the water in Neyland, and it doesn't seem to benefit the local economy. The boat owners turn up in their cars, sail off, come back and drive away again. The sole beneficiaries of their disposable income are Tesco and Toxico.
