A section of the remaining façade of the Claremont Hotel collapsed as a result of the high winds brought by Storm Ciara on 8th February, coincidently just after Listed Building Consent for its demolition had been granted by Eastbourne Borough Council.

Demolition of the remainder of the dangerous structure was completed in a controlled manner on 14th February before the arrival of Storm Dennis over the weekend 15th / 16th Feb.
