So the pile gets bigger. In fact, they have filled the whole quay now. I stopped one of the fork lifts as he was dashing back and forth. On asking him why, his comment was “No idea. They tell me to move the wood, so I do it”. He agreed that they hadn’t done this for a long time but didn’t know why it was being done now.
A few days later, I was parking my car in Patteson Road and saw that there was a notice attached to a lamp post. From where I stood, I could see that it wasn’t the usual “closing the road” notice so went and had a read. Very interesting, as I am sure that you will agree.
There has been talk for a long time about Anglo-Norden moving into the port and flats being built but nothing ever happened. As I was told, there was difficulty over unloading Suntis. Once in the port, as I understand it, they would have to use port labour rather than their own. Well, reading this, it would seem that things are now moving on. Goodness knows how long the process will take – perhaps the local councillor can tell us – but it would make the Waterfront a lot more appealing., especially if the council insist on the dockside being upgraded, as they did with our block. If you remember, Persimmon had to arrange for a complete rebuild of the dock edge a few years ago (see my blog posts!). We will watch this one with interest.
