The Edge - GYPB

We'll keep this project seperate from the general GYPB chat.

I notice they now have a micro-site for it: http://www.theedgegreatyarmouth.co.uk/index.php 

(old news, or not?)

What's the local thoughts on this? I personally think that it looks pretty good and modern and hopefully will see some nicer infrastructure at PB as a result. What I hope this spawns is the regeneration of GY promenade as a whole. There is way too much derelict land, unused building and what are quite frankly eye sores on what could be a nice looking beach. Great Yarmouth is popular and we do enjoy the odd visit but there is so many things that could be improved along the seafront. Little things like galvanised steel fences surrounding the play areas on the beach, they look hideous. The council should impose or provide permanent plots which nice looking wooden fences around them for these entertainment providers. And whatever possessed them to build a monstrous leisure centre on the beach is beyond me!

Anyway, this looks nice enough. Not sure if the design could have incorporated some more of the the traditional architecture of the past but it certainly looks better than said leisure centre etc! As I said I hope it paves the way for more redevelopment opportunities in the town; and mainly along the seafront.

I don't think it will work. Especially in Gt Yarmouth. (Which having lived in for 16 years have come to the conclusion it's a dump)

Pleasure Beach is too "generic" now I think. Botton Brothers wouldn't be proud if they were still around..

And thw Twister has been dumped behind the Waltzer/Go-Karts = very unpopular

having Pleasure Beach alongside the edge will look fantastic; it does look nice in the website picture.

Why hasn't Yarmouth recognized itself that it looks a bit like dump for so long?

p.s maybe there should be a 'Made in Great Yarmouth' or 'The Only Way is Yarmouth'

just to confirm, drove past this arvo and there is NO building work of any description for the edge. The twister is dumped behind the waltzer and they are painting the rollercoaster, the sky drop is still up evolution was down. Is evolution still for sale ?

Not far from a year on from my last post in this section - there is nothing happening at all on "the edge" site

So this obviously isn't happening.

Why they did they big it up so much? And why hasn't anything been said about it not going ahead?

there was a bit on Yarmouth mercury forums a while back - basically just another red herring like the outer harbour - maybe the other operator will get the licence to do it ?
