In March 2017, after a period of public consultation, Seaford Town Council agreed to plans to improve the much-loved seafront at Seaford; the Seafront Development Plan has been adopted!

The plans include at The Martello section of the promenade, much needed new public toilets, new kiosks, an entertainments area and the new art feature seating area “The Shoal” made by local artists Gabby Tofts and Christian Funnell.

The Bönningstedt promenade will undergo the biggest transformation over three years including up to 60 new beach huts, a café and toilets as well as 20 Executive Chalets. Local sea defences will be introduced to protect this area as well as electricity and water supplies being introduced.

Beach volley ball and beach football sand areas will be introduced opposite The Salts as well as three outdoor showers along the beach for bathers and children’s sandpits at the three concession points along the promenade.

There will also be some environmental improvements including resilient plants and trees in containers, improved but reduced signage and direct links to the Town Centre to attract tourists to the local shops to sustain the local economy.

The final design was assimilated after considering previous public consultation including the 2010 Community Partnership Consultation and the recent consultation events held on the 3rd and 4th March when over 1000 people attended to give their views.

The £2.2 million required for the project will largely come from the sale of beach huts, however some beach huts will be retained for the public to hire as well. 

To reflect residents wishes the Town Council also resolved to have a policy statement that it would not support the introduction of charging for parking on the seafront in Seaford. Provision is being made however to provide an occasional overflow car park on the Martello field to be run by local charities with an optional donation to park there going to the local charity.

Below are a few images as a guide to some of the proposals.  Please note that these are for illustration purposes only.
