Just over three quarters of respondents (76%) are in agreement with the proposed approach to the economy and attractions; 30% ‘strongly agree’ (254 respondents) and 46% ‘agree’ (397 respondents).

A small proportion disagrees (4% of respondents).

The following chart shows agreement levels with economy and attractions. Agreement is high with 76% selecting ‘agree strongly’ or ‘agree’.

The 4% of respondents who disagree were asked which elements they disagree with. Two-thirds of this small cohort disagree with the only element of the proposed approach which is ‘Supporting development within the identified ‘clusters’, which have sites suitable for enhancement, and could accommodate a range of uses that could have a positive impact for the seafront as a destination‘.

Some respondents mention not wanting over-development, whilst others report that the proposal is unclear.
