    Interesting, quick read of the article...

    Reads semi-press release to me. Not so much unanimous public agreement but acceptance of an eyesore which needs to be redeveloped! This is a major step down of the previous ambitious development. I like the inclusion of a hotel - really? - people are queuing up to have views of the eyesore-end of the waterfront! (my views on budget and super-budget hotels are well known - or more to the point, the way the operators run them - very few jobs created and most hotel rooms will remain empty throughout the week. A clear over-supply and no intention to knock down prices to fill them... government needs to add taxes on empty hotel rooms especially in towns like Ipswich which have seen an explosion in town centre hotels and also homelessness at the same time...)

    Already a comment...

    Probably a translation of "I prefer the original proposed development..."
