SPLASH POINT REPAIRS SET TO START
June 26 2014.
Seaford Town Council and Lewis District Council have been working to organise repairs to Splash Point in Seaford. This will make the area accessible to the public once again, following damage during storms earlier in the year. Whilst neither Council owns the facility, it was deemed to be a project in need of public funds as it is so well-used by local residents and visitors alike.
Both Councils agreed to donate £10,000 to the project. The contract was today awarded to local company C J Thorne & Co Ltd. of Uckfield, a company that has undertaken similar projects in Brighton and Eastbourne.
It is expected that all the work will be completed within the next six weeks.
The Mayor of Seaford, Councillor Mark Brown said: “This is great news and shows how the Town Council is now working well with our partners to get things done for the people of Seaford.”
Seaford Town Council Leader and District Councillor Paul Franklin, who coordinated the efforts of both Councils said: “I am delighted that we have all been able to work together to get this far and look forward to seeing Splash Point open again for everyone to enjoy.”
Once the works are completed the area will be reopened for the public to use.
