You can have your say on the future of the town – says Eastbourne Borough Council.

The council is currently in the process of preparing a new Corporate Plan.

This is the document that sets out what the priorities are for the town and how the council aims to help deliver them.

A council spokesperson said, “It is important that a document like this is based on robust information and feedback and we are actively seeking input from residents, businesses, community groups and other local stakeholders to ensure that the chosen priorities are right for the town as a whole.

“Anybody who lives, works, shops or spends their leisure time in Eastbourne has an opinion that we’d like to hear.

“We have recently commissioned a residents survey that was sent out to 4,000 randomly selected households across the borough but we want to make sure that others have a chance to help shape the future of their town.

“Therefore, we have set up a short online survey to gather feedback on the services we provide and what our future priorities should be.

“All of this feedback will be used to help decide what should be our priority projects and aims for the next five years.

“Please take a few moments out of your day to complete the survey and share the link with as many of your associates, members, partners, etc. as you think appropriate.

“The survey will be live until the end of August and all responses are anonymous. The survey can be found at

“Please share the link and encourage as many people as you can to have their say.”
