New flats in Seabrook

New flats in Seabrook

That new development in Seabrook now has a name - Olivia Court -- and there are to be 22 2 bedroom apartments. Luxury, natch. I suppose the rule saying "you have to have this much social housing" is still suspended.

Limited progress on the new development at the end of Alexandra Corniche, it looks like a giant multi layered trench at the moment. It has not been flatted out which is suprising, so perhaps the properties there will be on two levels (some higher than others, rather than each property having stairs). I feel I should get out there and take some before and after pictures.

In other sort of related news, someone has moved the floodlights that were pointed at the giant earth moving equipment on the beach. Instead of pointing down they seem to be pointed directly at our bedroom window now. Really lights up our house.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
