SO how should Eastbourne spend the £20 million the Chancellor gave us in last week;’s Budget?

Well, a new independent town board will oversee this multi-million pound project.

It is to be made up of local community leaders and employers, with an independent chair.

Caroline Ansell said last night: “In creating our long term plan, the board will need to decide how to spend £2m a year for 10 years.

How this is spent is open ended, but it could be used to improve the town centre, boost local infrastructure, provide jobs and training opportunities, as well as bringing wider cultural and social benefits to the town.

We need as broader group of experiences on the board as possible, so if you think you or someone else you know has a unique skillset or insight to offer the town then please do get in touch or let me know.”
