They obviously hate boats being on the water!....Must be friends of crt!!👍

The residents are quoted as saying it is bad for their wellbeing to see a boat, so they must be. 😁

 

Get the stove lit and the generator running.

 aggressively obstructs residential light and views,

 

The photograph must be photoshopped, as it appears to show a barge at water level with a multi-storey residential development behind it, whereas clearly from the description someone has moored a ten deck cruise liner next to a bungalow....

It is in the floating harbour, so it isn't even as if it was photographed at low tide.

Another Heritage category entry for the IWA photo competition then?

 

I'm not sure how

 

and has a substantial adverse effect on the amenity, security and safety of our homes.

 

comes into it though.  Surely any passing scrotes can no longer see the goodies inside the ground floor flats, and the luxury waterside apartment dwellers can no longer see the scrotes ...

Didn't you know they can leap like a dolphin?  From a standing start as well.

It seems that there is quite a back story to this boat which perhaps means that the  few residents of the apartments whose light might just be affected are being used as a weapon in another war. At one stage the BBC described it as a 'ransom' boat when the developers of a site alongside its former mooring (where it was a permanent residence) threatened to pull out of the much-needed redevelopment unless the boat was moved. This involved the council having to buy out the resident so that they could relinquish the right to moor there. In turn, there has been a battle over the re-development with the movement to rewove all signs of Colston agitating for a community use for the site rather than a commercial one. This story may still have yet more legs to run, helping out a poor reporter with a piece to fill with anything that makes a Labour controlled council look unable to do anything sensible (ie something makes an already rich person richer!)

Its certainly not the prettiest of boats, but calling it a monstrosity is maybe a tad too much.

"Imposing", perhaps? It would look superb on a French canal, although it's too long to get through the Freycinet-size locks.
