Princes Parade is saved!


There are still some concrete blocks and security fencing on the site but the hoardings are now gone and work to replace them with some very low key fencing has started.

Although will be some time before the land between Princes Parade and the Royal Military Canal is back to its beautiful best, the views have been restored and the threat of development is gone.
No decisions have been made about its future and the Council is open to ideas.
