What happens now and how can I have a say?

During January-March 2017 people were invited to write in to their council with their ideas to help the Council create a shortlist of ideas for how our town should be run. You can see some of the responses at the bottom of the RDC Community Governance page.

The Bexhill Community Governance Review Steering Group met on 22nd May, considered all information, and decided to recommend three options for the second round of consultation:

  • no change
  • a town council for all 9 wards in Bexhill
  • an area committee for Bexhill

Council staff are working on costing the short listed options and that information was due to be available to the RDC Cabinet meeting on 3 July. The Cabinet was due to send a shortlist to the full Council on 10 July when all the councillors should have made a final decision on the options to shortlist.

In fact, the councillors returned the decision to the steering committee, so although a consultation was planned to start on 11 July and run for 8 weeks it is not now taking place on that date.

We will update this when we know more – the council page about the review has no further information at time of writing.

If you have any questions please email consultations@rother.gov.uk or write to Bexhill Community Governance Review, Rother District Council, Bexhill on Sea, TN39 3JX.

    Please keep us up to date with events and let us know if we can help in any way.

    5 cars fines £60 x5days=£1500x52week=£78000-£93600 this is only a short figure but it is much more that this council are not collecting that is why options 4 should be in place as rother must be that rich that it can through away that sum of money in a year on 5 cars a lone
