This reference to the building on Porty Links, something that happened over 150 years ago, seems relevant today...

The ground was, however, largely used by the boys and girls of the town for games of all kinds, cricket. and even golf being played night after night. The building of Elcho Terrace somewhat curtailed its suitableness for these healthy recreations, and ultimately the public were altogether deprived of the use of a piece of ground which in the memory of man had never been enclosed and was always looked upon as public property.

If only PAS had existed in 1850. Wonder if any of the current residents of the terrace would give up their homes for the shame of living in a building put up on our precious green space?
