Seaford Town Council has released its annual report for the year 2014/15.

In the report the town council sets out its performance and achievements, and provides an overview of what it is hoping to achieve over the coming 12 months.

The report details how the council wishes to promote The Salts Recreation Ground and increase the use of its facilities and attract tourism.

The winning design for the park’s play area has just been announced and it is hoped it will be open in time for the summer.

The council also wants to improve Martello Fields.

The council owned fields are used for a variety of outdoor events throughout the year.

The council wishes to begin work on creating a development plan for Martello Fields incorporating the seafront and finalise additional security for the site to deter unauthorised encampments.

The report states the council is also keen to begin work on creating a development plan for Crouch Gardens.

The Crouch houses the bowling club, football club, youth centre, play area, peace garden and community garden.

The council will work with these community groups to make the best of what is on offer at the site, the report said.

Marking the 50th anniversary of Seaford Head Local Nature Reserve is also on the council’s list of priorities. 
The report said the council wants to also enter into a long term management agreement with Sussex Wildlife Trust for the site and look at ways to increase the income of the reserve through better publicising of the filming and photography opportunities.

It will look at ways of getting utilities on site at The Base as well as assist the management committee with any ideas or projects, the report said.

The council also wants to increase the self management of Arts@theCrypt.
