I READ in dismay that the Beachcomber is to be demolished to become flats for the elderly.
I appreciate we have an ageing population but Seaford is overloaded with facilities for the elderly. It is also a totally unsuitable location due to the high winds from the sea most days meaning they would be marooned in the block similar to Stratheden Court.
Seaford is a lively town with good shops and restaurants/pubs-good bus/train links and a lot of young families.
I have a different view on this to Lynette James.
Why not demolish the pub and build a modern hotel?
There is lack of holiday accommodation here and we also need a decent seafood restaurant with this being an ideal location.
I fear Seaford will go into a decline if young people and families aren’t thought about.
