Seaford resident Phil Boorman said last week he is appalled at the rubbish in the area of South Hill Barn.
He is hoping to rally a team of volunteers to tidy-up on a regular basis.
I was personally brought up to both respect and enjoy our countryside. Are we alone in this?
Mr Boorman, of Cinque Ports Way, is keen on standing as an independent candidate in the Seaford Town Council election on May 7.
He said, “I wish to raise awareness and form a working group of voluntary people that would once a month help clear up the rubbish around South Hill Barn car park and the pathways leading down to the Coastguard Cottages.
“Earlier today [Tuesday] my wife and I went up to get some fresh air and we were appalled at the amount of rubbish and dog mess that was visible everwhere.
“I was personally brought up to both respect and enjoy our countryside. Are we alone in this?”
Anyone interested in helping can contact Mr Boorman via email at email@example.com or by telephone on 01323 891606.
The antiques dealer and coach driver said he was a lifelong resident of Seaford.
He pledged that as a councillor he would be active in the community, self-funded and not affiliated to any political party at town level.
