Folly jolly, new destination

The derelict factory at the folly is to be redeveloped if plans get approval.
Houses, (of course), a new road, new pontoon and hotel-bar-restaurant.
Personally, I am in favour.

It burnt down in 1960 (I think), they made plywood parts which included parts for the mosquito bomber.

Interesting. It may actually ruin The Folly, The attraction for taking our clients is the run up river and isolated loaction for people with mostly boaters present- new build may ruin this- just a thought

I am hoping it will prove more of an attraction as there will be an alternative to the folly.
The developers are aware of how busy the folly gets.

Maybe , not sure planning consent will be achieved and those houses on the foreshore are not going to be bought by local people due to price. Maybe you being local you can see what I cannot.
Could end up a holiday homes location which maynot help locals who need industry and work.

That may be the case, but its doing bugger all at the moment.
Lets not forget the hotel which will employ island people.
So far locally, there seems to be a lot of support for the project, which includes the council.
Planning is likely to be submitted in the next couple of months and we shall see.

Great to get more employment on island which has really suffered in recent years. Guess houses are the cost of having to give planning permission to hotels etc, Interesting to see if social housing is included. Hope it works out for the islands benefit

There won't unless the council have a hissy fit.
In fairness though, there are two large housing developments going on in the area and a large part of them is going to social housing.

I think you will find all developments have to include an element of social housing these days.

By the time they look into the effects on the flood plane and take a few soil samples, taking into consideration that it has been an industrial site in living memory, I reckon any developer will lose interest.
