PLEASE ALSO NOTE THE TOWN COUNCIL'S IMPORTANT COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS HERE

The Town Council has been regularly monitoring the situation in regard to Coronavirus (COVID-19) both locally and nationally. Following the most recent announcement by Government bringing us out of national lockdown and into tier two restrictions from 2nd December, the following measures have now been put in place:

The View at Seaford Head

Unfortunately, due to the restrictions within tier two, The View has been unable to reopen until further notice.

The View is hoping to open as soon as possible if the Government announce our area changing to tier three.  If you have any questions or would still like to make a booking for the future leave a message at 01323 890139 (option 3) or  email to hello@the-view.co.uk . A member of staff will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible. Any bookings are subject to restrictions that may be in place.

The View wishes to thank all its loyal customers for their support in these difficult times and looks forward to welcoming customers back through its doors in December.

Seaford Head Golf Course

In line with the Government’s announcement on 31st October 2020, from Thursday 5th November 2020 Seaford Head Golf Course was closed, and re-opened Wednesday 2nd December 2020.

There continues to be local rules in place, keeping in line with current restrictions, which can be found here - https://www.seafordheadgolfcourse.co.uk/

Please contact the Golf Professional, Fraser Morley, with any questions regarding membership or course rules upon reopening, by email at seafordheadproshop@hotmail.co.uk

Town Council Facilities and Concessions

Following the end of the 2nd lockdown, all Town Council facilities and concessions are now open, adhering to tier two restrictions.

The Town Council urges members of the public to use facilities responsibly, complying with guidance on social distancing;

  • Maintaining 2 metres distance from those not a part of your household
  • Meeting in groups of no more than 6 people outside
  • Not meeting with anyone inside who is not in your household or support bubble
  • Reducing contact with shared surfaces as best possible
  • Ensuring you wash your hands regularly and thoroughly, in particular when you have been outside your home

Town Council Events and Events on Town Council Land

There are no planned Town Council events.

The use of Town Council land is permitted, only once a Covid-specific risk assessment has been considered and approved with the open spaces application.

The Town Council is working with local organisations and groups to help promote ‘Shop Local’ in December, including the offering of free car parking in town centre car parks on 5th & 6th December, 12th & 13th December and 19th & 20th December.

Town Council Meetings

The Town Council will continue to hold all Council and Committee meetings virtually rather than in person. The details of any meetings on its website and also issued by email to registered recipients (sign up for these by emailing admin@seafordtowncouncil.gov.uk).

Town Council Projects

The Town Council had to take the difficult decision to cease non-urgent projects immediately until further notice. Officers continue to work hard to devise a project plan for when the Town Council is able to consider future project delivery.

Town Council Offices

The Town Council Offices were closed to members of the public from 20th March 2020 until Government guidance changed. Heeding the Government’s continued advice, the offices will continue to remain closed until further notice.

Officers continue to carry out their normal duties from home and the telephones are switched to the voicemail system, which is monitored throughout the day, with officers equipped to return calls where necessary. The admin@seafordtowncouncil.gov.uk email account continues to be monitored.

Anyone visiting the shared building at 37 Church Street is reminded to wear face coverings whilst in the shared reception areas. Services offered by the Citizen’s Advice Bureau also remain via telephone or online; there is as yet no face-to-face service.

Community Engagement

The Town Council will continue to communicate with the community via social media, the Town Council website, email and by telephone where necessary. In general, the Town Council will be following Government guidelines on limiting social contact and in trying to prevent a second wave of the virus. All measures above are therefore subject to change as deemed necessary.

The Town Council will help to share, where possible, information necessary or helpful to the community.

All at Seaford Town Council thank you for your patience and support during this time.
