The golf kiosk – artist’s impression of before and after redevelopment
To dispel rumours circulating that it is the intention of the Beacon Hub project to turn the Rottingdean pitch and putt course into some kind of ‘eco theme park’ somewhere between Disneyland and the Eden Project, the above shows how the modest redevelopment proposed might effect the outward appearance. It is intended that a significant proportion of the land will be retained for recreational use (dog walking, kite flying etc) by keeping the grass shorter than the reserve proper. The idea of a ‘sculpture trail’ has also been mooted.
Our next stage proposal is being presented to the City council next week – fingers crossed that they see fit to award the project the lease and allow the building to be redeveloped for the benefit of local children in particular.
