Seafront Exhibition and Survey

The exhibition attracted 800 visitors giving their ideas for enhancement ( in conjunction with the University of Brighton and local schools).A strategy for the Seafront was developed which after some time was incorporated in the Seaford Town Council’s Seafront Development Plan

Cross-Seaford Transport Working Group

Meets as required.   The group gave transport input to the Neighbourhood Plan and works with other organizations to make improvements to the services they deliver.

The Community Partnership  is actively involved in “Impact Seaford’ which oversees various projects to promote and regenerate the town.

Seaford Neighbourhood Plan

The plan is being developed by many volunteers, including three Community Partnership Directors, (one who is Chairman of the Steering Group)

WHAT NEXT?

The Partnership is looking at  access to the seafront and signage linking  with the town as well as other enhancements to the seafront and its environs.

The Seaford Neighbourhood Plan includes  a number of “Community Aspirations” which need to be developed into detailed proposals. These include enhancing the town centre, for example:

-possible mixed pedestrian/vehicle use of some

 roads,

-new lighting standards

-a Victorian shop front scheme,

-cobbled lanes, etc)
