Re-imagining Newhaven Programme
Lewes District Council has secured a place on a national pilot scheme that allows the council a more flexible approach to how it uses £37 million in government funding allocations.
Lewes District Council is one of only 10 local authorities nationally that has been invited onto the pilot. It consolidates the Future High Streets Fund, Town Deal and Levelling Up Fund capital funding programmes being delivered in Newhaven.
