It looks like some of the rides are still left on the end of the pier!? Seems obvious really but i'd never expected them to be left there as they were before the fire.
These rides were removed about 2 weeks ago. They remained on the pier for so long as they were unable to get any kind of transport to the back of the pier to remove them as the walkways had fallen through with the heat of the fire.
From what I hear, the locals are very fussy when it comes to the aesthetic design of any proposed seafront projects....
You are correct in saying that the locals (the older folk) are extremely fussy. When it comes to the tropicana you must remember it is located facing towards several retirement homes. The are a few other projects going on along the seafront that should highlight this including the big wheel they want on the beach lawns this summer.
