Lynches Prawns site on the foreshore

There's a few things that can be learnt from the Lynches Prawns site saga.

The proposal to demolish the one storey Lynches Prawns building and build a restaurant of two storeys above a basement and having a deck fronting the promenade and a take-away servery facing the road behind was recommended by the Council officers.

The majority of the elected Councillors backed the local residents and rejected the proposal.

The Land and Environment Court upheld the rejection.

The residents have raised some legitimate questions in their letter of 17 January 2009.

These questions need to be answered.

The history can be seen through the minutes of the council meetings

and the Land and Environment Court decision of 31 December 2008.
