Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, we now learn from your article in last Friday’s Herald that the council have told Mr Foyle that they cannot promise to put back any seating for a sun lounge in any future building.
This means that there will still be no seating under cover on the front from the Redoubt
westwards until you get towards Holywell. This a sad loss to visitors and residents alike.
It is worth mentioning that when the Redoubt Tearoom was built with no public free seating, the area had to revert to a sun lounge.
Perhaps this could be considered by the council when they make a final decision.
