Combe Valley Way has been selected as the official name for the Bexhill to Hastings Link Road.
At a meeting today (July 17)) Rother District Council’s planning committee decided on the name for the new road, which is due to open in May next year.
A shortlist of possible names was drawn up following consultation and a public vote narrowed this down to six firm favourites.
After discussion, members of the committee voted for their choice from the top six and Combe Valley Way was the clear winner.
During the discussion, a number of councillors commented that this was the most appropriate name as the new road crosses Combe Valley and signals the presence of Combe Valley Countryside Park to local residents and visitors alike.
