A spokesperson for the company said that after the Covid-19 pandemic, it had decided not to reopen and had reached an agreement to hand the site back to Eastbourne Borough Council, which is the freeholder of the site.

A spokesperson for the council has now said a future for the site will be announced soon.

The spokespersons said, “We are looking at short and medium term opportunities for the site and will provide an update soon.

“Longer term, all our plans on the seafront will be considered in the context of the recently announced flood protection project between Eastbourne to Pevensey.
