LETTER: Shame on the planners!

Who in heaven’s name authorised the construction of that huge monstrosity that has appeared on the A259, just south of the Martello roundabout on the way to Sovereign Harbour? It is even uglier than the ancient Hall and Co stone-crushing machine that used to stand near there, years ago. When (if?) it is completed, it will completely block out the views of the Downs, and when the sun is low there will be a huge shadow and then glare as one circumnavigates (hopefully missing any cyclists) the roundabout heading towards Eastbourne. Some of the construction around the harbour is pretty awful, but this new eyesore really takes the biscuit.

Planning regulators hang your heads in shame.
