Have your say on Eastbourne's cumulative impact area

This consultation has now closed.

Eastbourne’s Cumulative Impact Area was put in place in July 2007 to help prevent crime and disorder, increase public safety, prevent public nuisance and protect children from harm in the centre of town.

Our licensing policy and the cumulative impact area element of it, seeks to balance the needs of businesses operating in town and the rights of residents living near them.

We reviewed this policy and asked to hear from residents, businesses and local organisations about whether they think the area covered by this policy should:

  • Be reduced (by removing streets in the Little Chelsea area)

  • Be kept the same size

  • Be removed completely

The full policy can be downloaded below.

The closing date for responses was Sunday 3 September 2017 at 5pm.

Please note: if you responded to the Cumulative Impact Policy consultation we carried out between November 2016 and January 2017, your comments will have been be considered alongside any further comments we receive during the current consultation.

What happened next?

A summary of the consultation responses were included in a report to the council’s Licensing Committee to help them make their decision about any changes to the Cumulative Impact Area. It was decided that following the consultation, no changes would be made to the Cumulative Impact Area.
