Elegantly designed

SOME thoughts . . .

Love the plan to include tamarisks at Splash Point.

Not sure if they're natives, but they certainly conjure up long, hot summers on the West Sussex coast.

I remember tamarisks years ago on the Angmering seafront.

Elegant, wispy, sun-loving. They should lure that Mediterranean warmth north.

What about a fabulously-designed, state-of-the-art conference centre where the old Worthing police station used to be?

Something for conference-goers who don't want all the razzamatazz of Brighton and a wonderful amenity for Worthing and Sussex '“ with a caf, restaurant, film theatre etc.

I imagine the town's hotels would jump at all the additional trade it would bring.

On a less happy note, the Old Steyne was a total trash tip on Monday.

Nobody visiting Worthing would ever dream of coming back. Couldn't council cleansers make a point of hitting the Steyne early on a Monday morning to hoover up the weekend rubbish?
