Last month The Argus reported on traders’ anger over the glass wall put up by the Coppa Club in The Lanes, Brighton.
It surrounds the dolphin fountain in Brighton Square.
Traders have demanded that the restaurant owners at Coppa Club tear it down.
Brighton and Hove City Council revealed it has “not granted planning permission for this” and has “had no prior discussions with the Coppa Club or the landlord on the matter”.
So why aren’t council workers descending on the club to remove it?
Now Sarah Horne has set up a petition on change.org calling for its removal.
Why does she need to? Councils aren’t normally slow to act on these thing, are they? Except when it’s a member of the protected classes…
Coppa Club says it is creating an al fresco dining area, with the dolphin fountain as the focal point.
It’s not your property. And if the council can’t make that clear to you, why should anyone pay their council taxes?
