THE Friends of Eastbourne Seafront are furious that the council is refusing to reopen toilets by the Pier.

Here is our story from earlier in the week UPDATED: Toilets by the Pier will stay closed because the council can’t afford to keep them open – Bournefree Live – Latest news from Eastbourne, Polegate, Hailsham, Pevensey, Bexhill and Sussex.

The Friends say: “This is a disgrace.

This is the busiest part of the seafront, it’s where coaches drop off, Dotto and the open top bus operate from, both restart at Easter, to have no public toilets available and to expect the elderly or children or anyone else to walk to the Bandstand or Langley Point is awful.

The toilet at Fisherman’s Green is not mentioned? Is that next for closure?

Is this the way to treat residents and visitors?

Wanting tourists to visit and spend time and money in Eastbourne means providing basic facilities. EBC please get these toilets open again.”
