LETTER: Hands off our seafront

Is Eastbourne Borough Council trying to ruin our seafront?

News that beach huts are going up along the seafront has me asking a question: ‘Isn’t the point of a seafront to see the sea! Not huts? ‘

Also “Plans have been approved that will lead to the development of a top quality restaurant and café on the site of the old Wish Tower restaurant.” Has anyone actually been asked what they would like? The sunroom and cafe was a place for everyone. ‘Top Quality’ will probably mean ‘Top Prices’ and a limited amount of time to sit there. Surely I read that the majority of people would like a sunroom which serves sandwiches, tea, coffee etc and where you can sit for as long as you wish – as it used to be?

Eastbourne, you are losing your ‘friendly, picturesque, quiet’ face.
