THE former Bonners Music store at 56 Langney Rd in Eastbourne has been let to St Wilfrid’s Hospice for use as Retail store and offices above.

Anton Bree from Bree Prenton said: “Both Cath (Prenton MRICS) and myself had spent considerable time in preparing a planning application to demolish the premises and replace with a block of 47 flats. We had even completed the public consultation and were virtually ready to submit when approached by the proposed tenants in early June.

We are all delighted that the building can be utilised, in particular for such a worthy local Tenant with whom we have had a long history through Bree Prenton and my previous business.

“The development proposals are on the back burner for now and we wish St Wilfrid’s all the best in their new store.”
