Passing the Mills this morning we were shocked to see that someone has decided that the lighting/navigation tower at the rear of the Mills had to go (the one to the right in this image) and that no-one saw the need to consult with the community about its potential removal. It has been the incremental removal of the Port's character and texture that has most upset the community and we thought we had got to a point where the plight of what little that was left (after the destruction caused by the previous developers) was at least discussed. Wasn't that what the Port Steering Committee was set up for? Two steps forward, one step back, extremely disappointing. The tower was still featured in the site plans which went out as part of the earlier consultations so this has come as quite a shock.
