We thought you might like to see a really interesting proposal for the improvement of Ventnor that has come through.
It was written by John Whatley and he is very happy for his ideas to be put on the Forum so everyone can discuss them.
We have copied his notes for this post:
Flowersbrook and Boardwalk (2 separate ideas)
Build a solid wooden boardwalk between the Spyglass and Castle Cove
. Thus creating a circular walk returning via Flowersbrook.
The boardwalk would run along the bottom of the cliff, above the rocks.
The scheme will provide a level path to Steephill Cove from Ventnor for visitors who find the steps/slopes difficult
. e.g. clean weeds, make pond larger, make more of the waterfall nearby (it is hidden in bushes), make more of this as a visitor attraction
The waterfall and movement of the water to the sea could be a very attractive feature.
These sound like great ideas. John said that the boardwalk would also create viewing points that are not possible at the moment.
It looks to be a green and natural improvement.
So what does everyone think of it
Please use the poll to vote yes, no or not sure for a boardwalk
We have an outline drawing of the boardwalk idea from John which will be scanned in as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for the survey responses sent in so far, this is much appreciated
