A community group has put in plans to open a cafe at the Old Town Recreation Grounds in Eastbourne.

The plans, from the Old Town Hub Community Interest Company, would see a changing room building extended to create space for a new cafe.

The applicant says the cafe would open between 8am and 7pm and provide jobs for four full time and one part time employee.  

The proposal would see an extractor fan fitted to the building, but a noise impact assessment concluded that the sound would not exceed background levels as long as mitigations were in place.
