Seafront Local Plan - Issues and Options

SLP IO Report - Front Cover v3 copy

The Consultation period for the Seafront Local Plan Issues and Options Report has been extended to Friday 23 October 2015

Eastbourne seafront is one of the first things that people associate with the town, and is a big drawing point for tourists and the tourism industry, which is a big contributor to the town’s economy. It also has a massive social significance to local people. Therefore it is important that the future of the seafront is properly planned to ensure that it continues to meet residents and visitors expectation.

Therefore, Eastbourne Borough Council is preparing a Seafront Local Plan to provide a strategy for the seafront area of Eastbourne. It will identify and manage the major pressures for change and development, and aim to stimulate economic regeneration to provide a seafront that will continue to be a major asset for the town.

Please note that the consultation on the Seafront Local Plan Issues and Options Report does not relate to the proposed amendment to the bye law relating to cycling on the Seafront.
