In 2007 the North Bay corner complex, kiosks, swimming pool and chalets were earmarked for demolition to make way for a combined complex of Hotel and Cinema, Holiday flats and new chalets.
To date (November 2020) the Holiday flats and new chalets have been built, a long way from the original intentions.
This kiosk sold the best waffles I had ever tasted...
As demolition commenced I took a few images for my archive. I do not know how the existing owners/ tenants stood on a legal basis, but the remarks written on the chalet doors indicated annoyance at the council.
As they may be difficult to decipher as small images, each have the wording, as written, underneath.
Don’t knock the chalets down. Keep our chalets please.
