Hamble Road, Stone Cross

I have lived in Eastbourne for nine years and have had a Council Tax increase every year but our community services have dramatically decreased.

Loop bus service – appalling.

Train service – appalling.

Pavements – appalling.

Roads – appalling.

Police presence – appalling.

Community policing –appalling

Street lighting – appalling.

Street drinkers allowed to congregate in public areas – appalling.

Schools overcrowded – appalling

Doctors overcrowded – appalling.

Where and how is our money spent?

Eastbourne was a fantastic place to live but it’s becoming a very scary place.

We need tourists for our business to survive.

First impressions are very important when getting off a train (if they are running) and walking down Terminus Road and having to walk past groups of drunk people does not encourage people to return.

People now drive to Bexhill or Seaford as they encourage tourists with their free parking policy, that’s where we go.
