PROPERTY developer Phil Turtle has accused ‘council jobsworths of striking again’ in a row over outside seats in Eastbournen Town Centre.

Deja Vu at 1 Bolton Road has been told by the council to remove all its chairs.

Phil is appalled.

He posted: “Boris told us all to muck in. Nationwide Bank gave cafe Deja Vu permission to use their frontage for more tables whilst eating indoors is not possible.

Despite Deja Vu having applied for a licence. Council Jobsworths toldr the owners this morning : “CLEAR THE TABLES AWAY NOW!”

They couldn’t even manage to pretend to be human for a few days until restaurants can reopen.

People want to eat and drink – their only choice is outdoors.

Cafe owners are on the brink of bankruptcy – no council superannuated security for them.

But no, the council denies them the opportunity to break even for a few days. Councils are unaccountable and out of control. They need to be brought to book.”
