Daft huts

Campaigners have slated plans to put beach huts at the foot of the Downs as “daft and opportunistic”. Phil Rose, founder of the Friends of the Downs, said:

“I thought this idea was dead in the water. This time officers are trying to put beach huts on the concrete rather than the slopes. But our concerns remain about vandalism. The Red Shelter was burned down.”

The city council has marked the area as a low “priority 4” site, but notes the site was originally designed for beach huts. Mr Rose said:

“If the council puts beach huts there and we gain permission to register the site as a village green, they will be obliged by law to remove them again. It strikes me as a bit daft and opportunistic given the vociferous opposition they’ve faced.”
