Signs of progress at Splash Point at last

Many local residents and visitors alike have been very disappointed with the prolonged closure of Splash Point and the apparent lack of any activity to repair and reopen this much valued local amenity spot.

It is two months now since the winter storms of February 2014 and in that time the whole of Seaford beach has been reinstated. The only apparent action at Splash Point has been to erect these very permanent looking gates to bar access to the area. No repair work has taken place to reinstate the storm damaged promenade.

I am very pleased to report that following some investigative work I have it on very good authority that Lewes DC are working with the Environment Agency and with Seaford TC and that quotes for the repair work are currently being sort.

There is a need to remain vigilant and not let this matter drift on too long. Let us hope that it will not be too long before Splash Point is open and accessible once again.
