WE are surprised that no provision has been made for parking when the old Co-op building is converted to a hotel.
Even more surprising are the plans for the Devonshire Park complex shown in the Eastbourne Review.
Plans 2 and 4 show little or no car parking facilities. The existing car park is nearly always full when big shows are on at the Congress Theatre.
On-street parking is insufficient and attendances will suffer.
Plan 4 provides for demolishing the existing who courts and stands and building new ones on the existing car park.
We can suggest only that our ‘city fathers’ are completely out of touch with reality and believe money grows on trees.
