Cove Harbour, Aberdeen, under threat - of what exactly is unclear

Press & Journal writes:

A plastic surgeon who erected a controversial “disgrace” of a blockade at an historic Aberdeen harbour has been told to remove it  by Aberdeen City Council after officers found it to be restricting the public from their rights of access.

In December Pralhad Kolhe, a consultant plastic surgeon who owns part of the bay at Cove Harbour, put in place four huge boulders to prevent vehicular access to the pier of the traditional port.

The move came after a series of conflicts between Mr Kolhe and the fishermen of Cove Harbour, whose families have fished from the site for generations.

I don't know any more than I've read in the news, but it seems to be yet another example of ownership trying to trump traditional use. There's a petition here.
