A Labour council will talk to you about the future of your town or village, what is needed to make your area even better to live in, to work in, to do business in and to get around. We would work together to develop a plan and priorities for investment and improvement for Southwick and Fishersgate, Shoreham, Lancing and Sompting.

Some things stand out:

We will ensure building developments serve the needs of the community. They should be of an appropriate scale and provide social housing and space the community can use. Developers must make meaningful financial contributions to support our health services, schools and environment.

We will improve public spaces and town centres – safe, clean, tidier town and village centres; attractive areas with their own identities and community facilities. This means things such as more flowers, plants and places to sit and better bins, including recycling bins. We will provide more places to park and store cycles. We will look at whether a town centre manager, working with traders and residents could support these improvements and ensure they are delivered and maintained.

We will give priority to local businesses for council contracts, boosting jobs and business. We will encourage local businesses to do the same.

We will bid for funding for improvements to town centres and parks. Much of the council’s funding comes from your council tax or business rates. We will use that money wisely but Adur needs more money to invest in our community. Eastbourne received £19m from the Government’s Levelling Up Fund last year, Newhaven received £16m and Arun was awarded £19.4m for projects in Littlehampton and Bognor. Adur received nothing.

We will attract more visitors, helping our local economy – we will work with local traders and cafes to listen to what they say about attracting visitors  – better, more attractive signs from stations to the shops and visitor attractions. A visitor guide, promoting Adur widely.

The community will decide what is needed to make Adur even better:

    • to live in
    • to work in
    • to do business in and
    • to get around

We will have a community-led plan for Adur.  Neighbourhoods deciding their future – power to your neighbourhood!

We would bring improvements to make our town and village centres more attractive.
