Bandstand among plans to improve Seaford seafront
4:30pm Friday 12th July 2013 in News
An “informal” bandstand is planned for a new seaside town.
The structure could be built near the Martello Tower in Seaford as part of a project designed by Seaford Community Partnership.
If approved by Seaford Town Council, the entertainment area would offer a space for live music and drama.
This is just one of a number of proposals the community partnership is looking at to improve the seafront. Others include a beach garden, making Splash Point groyne more accessible and an indoor area to enjoy refreshments.
Peter White, a director of the community partnership, said the council had run out of places to put donated benches and this could provide an alternative.
Work on Splash Point groyne would include a ramp, seating and replacing the fence, however the partnership said it had health and safety issues to address before this could go ahead.
Partnership chairman Keith Blackburn said: “That’s taking time but it is important that we get things right.
“Some initial designs have been done and some thought given to possible sponsorship and possible sources of funding have been identified.”
During a consultation carried out by the community partnership, it was revealed people were keen to have somewhere indoors to be able to have a drink by the sea.
