I think this refers to the ones on the roof of the underground car park on the Esplanada.

This was the subject last year of a very heated row between the Lagos bar and restaurant owners and the council. They learned that this council run development was to be exempt from the draconian new licensing regulations for the town's establishments.

It is the most unappealing of locations.

It's adjacent to Praça Infante Dom Henrique on the Aveinda, where the old car park used to be.

Seen them twice today and each time I go past these ugly carbuncles I feel like reaching for a barf bag.

Location as indicated above the new underground car park on the Avenida.

I suspect that the delay has been due to the aftereffects of the Lagos Bar Wars Saga, (referred to by Cubsur above ), the alleged conflict of interest case that arose therefrom,and the impending municipal elections on 29 September, 2013.

I think there is a real possibility that these may end up remaining empty for quite a few months, years, centuries, aeons!

I put you forward ages ago (before I packed up being a DE myself). Of course others may not know that you were a DE for years before you went on your sabbatical.

It is a little known fact that anyone who has the requisite knowledge can also put themselves forward for consideration to become a DE. So if anyone fancies getting involved why not contact TA?
