Thanks for the almost overwhelming feedback Smuggler, whoever you are. We would agree with you that the Green House would make a great wine bar. We do have idea for the Landmark, bus station and if you send pictures may be able to produce a ‘what if’ for those and the empty hotel site.

A boarded up empty pup in sydenham had a makeover recently on it’s boarded up hoardings. The pub is the Greyhound, so they painted ‘grey hounds’ in grey silhouettes over it (in the style of those old dog playing poker portraits you used to get in pubs). A simple solution that made a difference.

Were a fan of the smugglers articles, while we may not always agree with what he says, it’s good that someone has the balls to say it. And it needs someone to say the brutal truth sometimes. Best of all it raises debate.

The difficult bit is turning debate into solutions and actions.

There has been debate about making this into an exhibition. We have had designers in Devon contact us about helping out. I’m totally in favour of an exhibition, especially if they use an empty shop to do it in.

We have received a few images from people in Ilfracombe asking for makeovers. Many thanks for your images, keep sending them! We can’t do them all, but we will endevour to publish some more in the coming weeks.

Thanks

GOOD FEEDBACK ON WHAT IF ILFRACOMBE


On the Journals Website there has been very positive feedback on the project so far.

Have a look for yourself:

W.I.I. wrote to all the Ilfracombe councilors last week to point them towards this project including Cllr Edmunds. As yet we are still waiting for them to respond. Perhaps they are all very busy!

WHAT IF THIS…


If you have images of something in Ilfracombe that needs help, please get in touch. We can’t promise anything and wont do all requests, there just aren’t enough hours in the day, but it may be something we can look at in the future.

Love it or Loathe it?

In Particular the Landmark and the bus station from as many different angles as possible. We think the bus station is an opportunity that should give focus to the harbour and be something for people to do rather than more housing. Cafés, a piazza, an artificial beach with supervision for young kids so mum and dad can enjoy a bite to eat, an outdoor theatre or street performers. Or perhaps a market. But not housing. Not there in such a prime location. It’s crazy!

Many thanks
