The Town Council has been regularly monitoring the situation regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) both locally and nationally. Following the most recent announcement made by the national Government on the evening of the 4th of January the following arrangements are in place:

The View at Seaford Head

Unfortunately, due to the restrictions The View will remain closed until further notice.

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.

Seaford Head Golf Course

Seaford Head Golf Course will now close, as instructed by the new government guidelines

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

Town Council Facilities and Concessions

Public toilets, playgrounds, car parks and public spaces remain open.

Tennis courts and other outdoor sporting facilities are closed.

Concessions remain open, as per the Government guidance, but we are mindful of the government advice to stay at home and are reminding concession holders of their responsibilities i.e.:

'It is against the law to meet socially with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble. You can only leave your home to exercise, and not for the purpose of recreation or leisure (e.g. a picnic or a social meeting). This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.'

We are also making sure they have the necessary measures in place to maintain strict social distancing.

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.

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 make plans for when the Town Council is able to consider future project delivery again.

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 remain via telephone or online only at this stage.

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 any further spread of the virus. All measures above are therefore subject to change as deemed necessary and this guidance will be updated as necessary.

The Town Council will do all we can to share information necessary or helpful to the community regarding COVID-19.

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