Early sample poll: Total of 20 people vote in the first three days: Latest poll results

Do you support the second application to develop the Beach Tavern site in Pevensey Bay?
no 57.89% (11 votes)
yes 42.11% (8 votes)

Poll results will continue to be posted to the date of the application hearing at Wealden Council. The application hearing will be webcast by Wealden Council.

The proposal has the potential to radically change the perception of the village for both residents and visitors at a focal point in the village.

The community appears to be deeply divided over support for second application to develop Beach Tavern site

Our poll, which is to be published in edition 20 of the Pevensey Bay Journal, shows an even split between people that support the development and people that are against the development.

There is an opportunity for local people, to meet the developer, Ray Foss, at a Pevensey Parish Council planning committee meeting that is to be held on August 7 at St.Wilfrid’s Hall in the evening.

David Banks, who lived in Coast Road in Pevensey Bay for 30 years, and continues to take a keen interest in the profile of the village commented, with regard to the decision by Ray Foss, the developer of the site to turn up at the Parish Council meeting, “this is a brave decision by the developer, top marks”

The meeting may attract 50 to 100 local people, as, to a certain extent, the future profile of the village is at stake.

There is every expectation that the meeting will provide an opportunity for residents to say what they think about the proposal with the second application made by the developer.

There has been concern amongst residents that the meeting may be held in the afternoon, when many local people would not be able to attend.

A source at Pevensey Parish Council said “we can assure residents that this meeting will be held in the evening, agendas and dates and times of all meetings are posted in advance to our website”.

UPDATE: Talking to Bay Life today (1 August) Sarah Mosedale, Clerk to Pevensey Parish Council told us, “I just wanted to clarify that the Committee meeting on Tuesday 7th August starts promptly at 7.00pm”.
