**PLEASE NOTE THE SEAFRONT PLAN IS CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW AND INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE IS TO BE UPDATED**(August 2023)
Background to the Plan
Representations made to Seaford Town Council from the Seaford Community Partnership, made up of local residents. The Community Partnership had carried out its own consultation with visitors to the seafront in 2010. From this some new projects were implemented such as the Sunken Gardens. Equally many of the favoured ideas such as turning the terminal groin into a pier had 64% support. Equally the introduction of beach huts and landscaping at Bönningstedt had 62% support. Better toilet provision had a massive 96% support.
From this initial consultation Seaford Town Council undertook its own public consultation in 2017. The results of this were equally compelling to improve the seafront for all to enjoy. After significant publicity, local press, social media, newsletters and radio over 1,000 people attended to two-day exhibition with almost 500 completing the survey. A massive 88% of residents supported the seafront development plan. Equally 94% supported the building of new toilets at the Martello Tower area. Similar to the Community Partnership survey, 84% supported the construction of more beach huts, with 72% supporting a new café at Bönningstedt Promenade.
As a result of the public consultations and further feedback from residents, Councillors and local businesses, the Seafront Improvement Plan was adopted by the Town Council in March 2017.
