What about the ex-nursing home?

I READ with interest in the Eastbourne Herald on Friday that there is a dire need for council housing, this is nothing new.

How about making use of the many empty properties that are around, especially places like the ex-nursing home, The Belmont, Pevensey Bay Road, that has stood empty for years.

I worked in it when it was the Eastbourne Motel and thought it to be a lovely building.

I am sure it would make some lovely flats for people who need a home and cut the council waiting list down a bit.

Obviously I don’t know the details of the building but it’s just an idea.
