There goes the neighbourhood! Millionaire Sandbanks residents fear a 10-storey 'monstrous carbuncle' block of flats will turn their exclusive Dorset resort into the BENIDORM of Britain
Millionaire residents of Sandbanks, in Poole, are joining together to object to plans to replace an historic hotel dating from 1880 with 196 luxury flats in a 10-storey block, facing out to the sea.
