Gimme Shelter

From The Daily Mail and/or Metrolyrics:

Yeah, a local business is threatening
My very life today
If the planners don't turn them down
Ooh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

The planned new café, children, is just two miles away
Is just two miles away
The planned café, children, is just two miles away
Is just two miles away, miles away, miles away, yeah

Quite frankly what the bloody Hell is architecturally wrong that that caff?

View from the Solent said...

Can't be the Mail, I think your link has been hijacked and points to a spoof. No mention anywhere of the value of Keef's mansion.

"Patrick Byrne, a director of the estate, said the building had been sited nearer the beach so visitors could enjoy sea views for the next 50 years"

He's being hopeful, there appears to be a socking great hedge between the cafe and the sea.

The cafe looks fine to me although seagulls might crap all over those solar panels.

L, most large buildings look weird from above, I'm sure that in context seen from ground level it will be hardly noticeable, especially with those high dunes along the beach.

VFTS, fair point.

B, indeed. Anyway, fifty years is an ample pay-back period for a run of the mill building like that.

AKH, let's hope so.
