The re-building of the Milford on Sea seafront Beach Huts destroyed on Valentine's Day 2014 has again be delayed.
We understand that at a recent NFDC meeting it was revealed that tenders from four contractors had all been received with costs substantially above those previously expected.
It is understood that the lion's share of the increased costs comes from the works associated with alterations to the create an upper promenade on the beach hut roofs with ramped access.
Further NFDC meetings now need to take place to decide the next step, meanwhile it seems unlikely that the seafront will see any new beach huts in 2016.
Whilst the saga continues, Milford on Sea Parish Council are considering initial design and layout for seafront play facilities. We believe the ideas were discussed at a recent meeting, but as yet we do not know of any proposals.
