MP calls for repairs to popular beauty spot

Seaford MP Norman Baker is calling upon Lewes District Council to make urgent repairs to Splash Point following damage caused by recent storms.

The area is now gated off from the public preventing access, due to safety concerns.

This popular spot, where both visitors and locals can enjoy the coast and, during warmer months, view the rare colony of kittiwakes, is now out of bounds after Lewes District Council erected substantial gates and fencing.

The damage caused by the storms include the falling away of the path and the wall underneath has been undermined. Residents are calling for these repairs to be made a priority.

Norman said, “Unless action is taken to make these repairs, the problem is only going to get worse. We are fast approaching fine weather and holidays, when visitors to the area will want to be enjoying walks, views and the beach and instead will be greeted by a large gate and a lack of action.

“Lewes District Council must progress with this work to help save Splash Point and ensure the local economy is not affected by a lack of visitors to the area.”
