Talks needed over beauty spot’s future

First published in News

Community leaders are calling for urgent talks over the future of a beauty spot.

MP Norman Baker and Lewes District councillors are looking to discuss the future of Splash Point in Seaford.

The seafront tourist attraction is a favourite spot for those wishing to see a breeding colony of kittiwake birds.

But it has been closed to the public since the district council put up large gates and fencing because of storms earlier this year leading to concerns for public safety.

Damage caused by the storms included the falling away of the footpath and the wall underneath being affected.

Now the Lewes MP, along with Seaford Town and District councillors, are calling for a meeting with stakeholders including Seaford Town Council and the Environment Agency.

Mr Baker said: “I welcome the news Lewes District is working towards remedial repairs, but unless action is taken to develop and ensure this for the future, the problem is only going to get worse. Progress to help save Splash Point must be made to enable safe access for local people.

Lib Dem Lewes district councillor Sarah Osborne said: “Without agreement from all parties we are unable to progress with future works for the area to save it for future generations.”
