East Sussex County Council Fairer Funding Campaign - Stand Up for East Sussex

Thursday 19th October 2017 9:10am

You may have already seen that East Sussex County Council has launched a fairer funding campaign – Stand Up For East Sussex.


We’re urging people in Heathfield and across East Sussex to stand up for their county by calling on the Government to give them a fairer deal.


We’re asking Heathfield residents and businesses to sign a petition to the Prime Minister which calls for an urgent rethink on the resources the county receives.


The county has a high and fast-growing elderly population, wages below the national average, few large firms to boost its business rates and a transport network which often lets residents and businesses down. Yet savings of £112 million have been made from services in East Sussex since the start of the decade – enough to meet the yearly costs of caring for 5,600 vulnerable people, or to repair 2 million potholes.

If you could share the link to our website page (below - which links to the petition) with your networks we’d be extremely grateful. And if you’ve shared this already then thank you!


Many thanks.
