The Town Council is pleased to announce that, following repair work, Splash Point has reopened.
Following its disappointing closure in February due to storm damage, the Town Council is delighted that repair work organised by Lewes District Council is complete, enabling Splash Point to be reopened to the public.
“Splash Point is a well-loved and used seafront asset, and residents and visitors alike will be pleased to see it reopened after it was closed following storm damage”, Cllr Sylvia Dunn, Chair of the Community Services Committee.
The hard work to protect this popular and iconic seafront feature is a direct result of positive partnership working with a number of community groups, organisations, and local authorities, forming a Seaford Beach Partnership.
The Seaford Beach Partnership brought together the Town Council, Lewes District Council, the Environment Agency, Seaford Lifeguards, Newhaven Port and Properties, Impact Seaford and the Local Independent Sea Anglers.
In addition to the works organised by Lewes District Council at Splash Point, jointly funded by the Town Council, Lewes District Council and the Environment Agency, the collaboration of the Partnership has also resulted in new dedicated recycling bins for used fishing lines, new beach safety signs along the entire bay and a beach user guide which includes Covid-19 safety guidance.
The Town Council is pleased to continue working with the Partnership to improve the seafront, making it an enjoyable and safe facility for all.
