EASTBOURNE Access Group is unhappy with shops blocking the pavements at the weekend.

It says this is ‘totally unacceptable … profit before access. Once again where is the enforcement to ensure equality is guaranteed to safe access in and around our town?”

It gives three examples:

  1. Victoria Place: Trattoria and Great both have tables and chairs blocking the pavements.
  2. Carlisle Road: Favoloso blocking drop kerb plus breeze blowing chairs nearly on to the road.
  3. South Street: Simply Patisserie totally blocking the pavement with gazebo, tables and chairs plus barrier.Totally unacceptable … profit before access. Once again where is the enforcement to ensure equality is guaranteed to safe access in and around our town?
