£410,000 for youth hostel part of seaside town storm fund

First published in News

A new youth hostel will be created in Brighton as part of a multi-million fund for towns affected by winter storms.

The Department for Local Government and Communities has announced that £410, 000 will be awarded to establish a new youth hostel in Brighton and develop an existing site in Robin Hoods Bay in Yorkshire.

According to the department, the newly developed hostels will provide new and improved holiday accommodation in two popular coastal towns, boost tourism numbers and help create a new café for both locals and visitors.

It is anticipated that the project will create and support around 76 jobs in total.

The funding is part of £8.5 million announced this morning from the Coastal Communities Fund.

Other beneficiaries include Penzance which will receive almost £2 million to relaunch the grade II listed Jubilee Pool Lido and Portsmouth which received almost £1.8 million to repair their “neglected” Victorian arches.

What has getting a new youth hostel got to do with towns affected by winter storms?
Surely as they're doing in Portsmouth, the money would be more appropriately spent on our neglected seafront. All the metal balustrades along the whole front are sorely in need of a fresh coat of paint.

Unbelievable the city is crying out for 21st century housing and all we get is student flats and now another hostel, like we really need more young drunken tourists stocking up on supermarket booze, driving out the mentally mature and beneficial tourists that may actually want to arrive by car and spend money. Waste, waste and more waste, only the Greens.

Funny, it is the coalition government that is withholding funds for social housing; the council would love to build more council housing after building the first for over 20 years in the city, and the private sector is providing the student accommodation. Only the Tories eh! Did you vote for them? Yep.

Only 48% of households in the UK are net financial contributors to society. Maybe someone should ask what they want for a change?
