LETTER: Suddenly, cafe work can begin

Eastbourne Borough Council really is unbelievable. After months and months of procrastination and numerous excuses given to the Princes Park cafe operators for more than a year, they suddenly are able to announce that the cafe will be completely refurbished and added to and work is due to start next month. Amazing. Am I alone in thinking that maybe the council wanted rid of the operators so that work could begin? It does seem rather a coincidence to me that just a few weeks after the operators of Pistachios decided enough was enough and after they had spent a good deal of their own money repairing the cafe in order to keep trading while the council did nothing to help,they were forced to close the business.

I would be interested to hear what, if anything, the council has to say in its defence.
