Caroline Ansell MP secures £20M funding for Eastbourne

The Government has released £20 million to regenerate the town. Caroline Ansell, MP has been instrumental in securing this for Eastbourne.

Caroline is asking us to complete a survey so that she knows how we want the money to be spent.

She writes:

'The final decisions on how this money is spent will be made by local leaders and can go on priorities from high street or seafront regeneration to community safety or transport links.

There will also be more support to allow councils to make use of a suite of regeneration powers to unlock more private sector investment by auctioning empty high street shops – something I have campaigned to happen and would allow empty sites in the town centre to be used for much-needed employment space'

Please have your say by completing the Survey. You can see the survey by clicking the link  HERE

Parking Meters being Removed!

Gaynor Sedgwick today spoke with the East Sussex County Council Parking Team Manager who has given a different version of the  information first supplied to FOES. The parking meters that are covered with a purple wrap are not being converted to App only, (as first indicated), but are being removed altogether! There will be NO PUBLIC CONSULTATION about this but they are waiting to see if there is indeed any reaction by the public! To put this into some context, there are 171 parking meters in Eastbourne and 71 are earmarked for removal.

ESCC report that the machines that have been covered are used less than others and that there are other machines close by.

In short, ESCC parking team, who have made this decision, will be removing  all parking machines with purple wraps on along the seafront and in the town UNLESS there is opposition.

Caroline Ansell MP is also concerned and has taken this decision up with Rupert Clubb, Director of Transport ESCC.

If you have concerns then please contact: and speak to your local Councillor.
