Spokesman for Seaford Town Council

Seaford Town Council has announced that The Salts Development Plan has taken its first major step forward.

The end result will be the play area selected will be that favoured by the people of Seaford

Tender invitations were sent to five play area specialists 
recently, asking them to submit design proposals for a new
 children’s play space at The Salts.

This follows agreement 
with Lewes District Council to release more than £200,000 from money received for leisure as a result of new housing in the town.

All play company proposals that meet or exceed the design requirements will then be presented to members of the public.

Residents will be asked to select their favourite design
 as well as having the opportunity to add some additional 
comments relevant to that design.

Further information will be released confirming the dates and method of consultation, which will be toward the end of March or early April.

A spokesperson for Seaford Town Council said, “A combination of displays set up in selected venues and online survey options will be used.

“The end result will be the play area selected will be that
 favoured by the people of Seaford.

“Time is of the essence, following the dates that have been provisionally planned; the 
play space is proposed to be completed ahead of the summer holidays ensuring that The Salts can provide the long awaited quality of service that Seaford residents have been asking for.”

In addition with the first phase of the Development Plan now launched, the next phases are being developed.

These stages are hoped to be rolled out in succession, subject to funding.
