THE Fort Fun fiasco continues to plague Eastbourne Borough Council.

The site on Eastbourne Seafront is a mess, and the council says part of it will be open ‘by the spring.’

The Friends of Eastbourne Seafront are warning: “We are watching the progress of Fort Fun very closely . Wingrove House intend to open the indoor play only. The outside area will be cleared and grassed over.

EBC have only offered a short 5 year lease so the investment in the site is going to be understandably limited. Should EBC still be holding out for the Eden Project on this site? It will mean a huge financial investment for EBC at a time when finances are stretched to say the least.

Eastbourne needs a really great children’s park, why can’t EBC speed up the development of the site and advertise it nationally.”
