As I was in the area, today, I thought I’d drop in to the Asda in Brighton Marina. Big mistake. Whoever owns Brighton Marina has been steadily building more and more shops and flats. As the Marina is artificial it only has one access road which runs down a sort of flyover. Add to this the way that the Asda car park entrance runs around a bend so that you cannot see the mass of traffic before you until it’s too late and you’ve joined the queue for the car park. I queued patiently and parked. When I emerged it took me 45 minutes just to get out of the car park.
All this is, of course, ghastly but it made me wonder about the new development which was being planned for Brighton Marina which, according to some reports, could include 1,280 new apartments.
It makes me wonder what our city council is thinking of. What possible sway could large rich developers have over city councillors? It beats me.
