#JettyGate - The Monstrous Metallic Carbuncle in Queen's Park Brighton

Loyal readers may recall that I have written about the Queen's Park jetty in Brighton 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)."

Here we are now in the latter part of September, and the 'Elf of Safety has exacted a terrible revenge on those who chucked the "safety" barriers into the lake.

Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you the monstrous carbuncle, which is a metallic blight on what was an attractive wooden jetty.

I would draw your attention to the gate, which has potential for a padlock to be added!

All this so that councillors can moor their super-yachts on the pond.
