#JettyGate The Movie - The Sorry Tale of The Queen's Park Jetty in Brighton

Loyal readers may recall that I have written about the Queen's Park jetty on a number of occasions, eg May 2020 I wrote the following:
"A jetty over Brighton Queen’s Park pond is set to open in March – almost a year late following health and safety delays.

The jetty was built in 2019 after park visitors were asked to choose how to spend money contributed by local developers – either to rework its quiet garden to open it up and deter drug users, or to create a dipping platform.

The platform project was chosen and the jetty was completed to the original designs by May – but a surprise inspection by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents meant it has remained fenced off ever since.
A few weeks later the barriers were then unceremoniously thrown into the pond, and access to the jetty was restored. Then a fortnight ago I saw that the barriers had been re-erected, and restored to their position in front of the jetty blocking access. Two days later they were moved allowing access.

Great, common sense prevailed!

Sadly not, for this morning I see that one of the "safety" barriers has again been re-erected, and placed in front of the jetty blocking access (before and after pictures above)."

Just to remind you, this jetty was meant to open in March 2019!

As it is a Bank Holiday Weekend, I have created a wee movie about the ongoing fiasco.

When you have a spare ten minutes, settle down in front of a large screen with some popcorn, a hotdog and some booze and enjoy!

Happy viewing! is brought to you by "The Living Brand"
