Ilex plans: some alternatives

Regular readers to this publication will be aware that I’m not a great fan of poorly thought-out, costly, pointless urban development who sole reason for being done is GREED not NEED. You’ll be already familiar with my stance on teh usage proposed for the old Fort George site on the banks of the River Foyle. (Read this: Dallas Descends on Downtown Derry! if you need to be reminded! )

Now we’re lucky that some other people have begun to see how poorly thought out this development is and to demonstrate some alternatives. I’ll highlight a few here from some St Columb’s College sixth-formers. Please feel free to add some more!
