Seafront changes are given green light by county council

Changes on the seafront aimed at boosting economic prosperity of Bexhill have been given the go-ahead.

However there are amendments to the scheme following feedback from the public.

East Sussex County Council will introduce a 20mph speed limit, widen footways and improve bus stop facilities in Marina, and also improve Sackville Road roundabout.

There will be attention to the zebra crossing on Marina but it will not be moved nearer to Devonshire Road after concerns raised by residents.

However, planned improvements to Marina Court Avenue, including removing access to the De La Warr Pavilion car park, will be reviewed following results of the public consultation.

The ESCC work is expected to cost around £370,000, and due to begin in January 2015 lasting around three months.

The proposals for Marina Court Avenue will be reviewed with the aim of introducing revised proposals at a date in the future, subject to funding.

The improvements are being delivered alongside a refurbishment of the Marina Court Garden being carried out by Rother District Council.
