At their meeting last week the River folkies declared themselves "unimpressed" with the design put forward to the planning department for an extension to the Sports Club in Viewfield. You can view the details of the application here.
Equally unimpressed was Brian Stewart of the West CC who was also present on the public benches last Wednesday night. He told the meeting:
"Viewfield is basically still green space. I know there is a museum there and the Sports Club and the Tennis Court but it is an attractive part of town, and it is important that it looks good and the Sports Club is there and that's fine but we don't want buildings there that look like industrial premises. Anybody who comes to or through or past Viewfield, whether they are walking the dog or visiting the museum or whether they live beside it, they all see this."
River CC are not to object to the plans however, they will simply contribute a comment to the planning department.
