I hate sprawl but the trade off to high rise should be more PUBLIC open space at ground level. None of the options proposed in the City of Stirling (CoS) online questionnaire show freeing up of space at ground level. Boxing in right up to the foot path on Brighton Road is NOT agreeable to me. I would like to see the set-back from Brighton Road doubled from the current proposal and a height of about 9 or 10 floors not 13. I understand the "Brighton on Scarborough" developers say that's not profitable but I say how can others along the Esplanade make profit with many less floors. Hope 13 floors is an ambit claim and not just greed. The project won't need a pool if a public pool is built at the SSLSC. I say take the private pool out and back off. Winter mornings are cold enough without "Brighton on Scarborough" casting a shadow in the morning where now there's sun. Are the developers going to pay for heating?
What penalties will be applied to building contractors for excessive construction noise for one and a half years? What penalties will be applied to project overrun? CoS have told me there is no limit to the amplitude of the noise.
Yes I want our children to have jobs and yes more people need to live somewhere but lets not have sprawl. Up to 10 floors or in another town are the only sensible choices as I see it.

Today after 9960 views and 160 legitimate reply postings on the old Scarboro forum, I've copied my posting to this safe, secure coastal building development forum as a backup because hackers continue to delete topics and thousands of web spam postings at the old Scarboro forum are just too much to deal with. After nearly 3 years my opinion is still the same. The Minister of Planning has made a good compromise decision of 8 floors. Conditional upon developers is public agreement. CoS Aug'06 plans show zero set back and contrary to ministerial approval show 10 floors at the Esplanade end (west, beach-side) of the proposed development.

Your opinion is welcomed. The City of Stirling consultation period is still open. You can copy your posting (or visa versa) by writing to:
