Claremont Hotel fire

There was a further collapse of an internal wall of the Claremont Hotel on Thursday night (5 December). 

There is no change to the main cordon around the hotel or the section of the seafront road that remains closed. Building Control will continue to monitor the building. 

The Recovery Coordinating Group will continue to meet regularly and continue to issue information updates to the media.

Eastbourne remains open for business and while a very small area of the seafront is temporarily inaccessible, the rest of the town remains as vibrant and popular and welcoming as ever.
