    Coastline Housing is delighted that its been able to regenerate such an important and historic building? So why did local people have to launch a fairly big campaign to have it saved? Coastline Housing were the ones that wanted to demolish it, it just seems ignorant of Coastline to make out it was their intention all along to restore the building, and not say anything about the community's campaign to save it. Coastline do deserve some applaud for renovating the building, but some applaud also needs to be given to the people involved in the campaign to save it.
