Council launches consultation on four-year plan
Eastbourne residents and businesses are being invited to have their say on a draft plan which sets out the council's vision, direction and priorities for the next four years.
Both the document and survey can be accessed at www.lewes-eastbourne.gov.uk/EBCCorporatePlanConsultation
Councillor Stephen Holt, Leader of Eastbourne Borough Council, said: "It has been an incredibly challenging few years for Eastbourne, navigating our way through the pandemic, handling the huge financial pressures it brought, helping people through the cost of living crisis and now dealing with a massive rise in homelessness.
"Looking ahead, it's crucial that we continue to respond effectively to these and other key issues as we help the town strengthen, rebuild and grow.
"We have set out our priorities and ambitions for the next four years in our draft Corporate Plan and would really appreciate feedback and suggestions to make sure the document focuses on what matters most to local people."
The draft plan emphasises the importance of:
- Providing high quality, responsive services
- Delivering housing and tackling the cost-of-living crisis
- Boosting economic development and tourism
- Realising the council's ambitions around sustainability and the environment
The consultation runs until 5pm on Thursday, November 30.
Residents can request the consultation information in a different language or format such as a paper copy by visiting the council website.
