I think turning the dock into a permanent floating students' village is an awful idea, and I would definitely object to it.. Having that large open body of water is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and calming to the mind and it defines the character of the area. It would be good for nothing other than perhaps to generate a cash stream for the council, which is probably what the manager has his eyes on and not the interests and feelings of existing residents; which, as a council employee, should be his primary consideration.

As an aside, and as a user of the gym at the centre, I would also worry also about the hammering the currently excellent facilities at the centre would get with a large population (of students in this case) constantly using them.
