On the quiet, Seaford is a Destination. In the main visitors arrive for the day – there are comparatively few hotels or guest houses left in the town now. One of the facilities most towns take for granted is the presence of public conveniences in popular areas.

Seaford has three on or near the seafront: next to the Martello Tower, at the Salts Recreation Ground and at the Buckle car park. Those at the Martello have been in a disgraceful state for many years, but that is about to change – we hope. The town council has applied for a grant from Community Lottery Fund for the toilets and changing places parts of the build. It’s not a done deal, but they hope to find out if they’ve been successful in the not too distant future.

The remaining funds have been/will be raised by the town council itself.

The plans are to include a Changing Places facility, a new cafe / bistro with indoor and outdoor seating. The existing kiosk will remain.

As of May 2021 the Town Council has invited tenders from architects who would also act as clerk of works. Progress is being made.
