Andy Smith, chairman of the plans committee, is reported as saying the intention had been to allow enough homes to fund the play facilities and everyone was expecting attractions with a “wow factor”.
“There is considerable concern among Felixstowe councillors that we cannot find out any of the detail of what is being proposed and a suspicion that it is not going to be anywhere near as exciting or anywhere near as good as an attraction for the resort as we had hoped and discussed.”
