What is a Community Governance Review?

Bexhill Ward Map A Community Governance review is a process to allow everyone living in our area to have their say on how decisions are made in Bexhill. This community governance review applies to the 9 wards of Bexhill-on-Sea. The review has two consultation phases over 2017.

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 is a group of councillors who are organising the review process.  The 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

The Council has no official preference at this stage.
