In this week’s edition you can find a special report containing a full list and details of every candidate standing in this year’s local elections vying for your vote.

In Bexhill voters will be electing councillors to represent them at Bexhill Parish Council and East Sussex County Council, while all other voters in the district will be electing councillors to the county council only.

In other news, it has been announced that campers who illegally park on the beach at Cooden have been threatened with having their vehicles towed as the council cracks down on those flouting the rules. The full story is in today’s Observer.

Bexhill traders had a bumper reopening after lockdown restrictions were eased last week but business leaders in the town warn that restaurants need more help in order to survive. For the full story and reaction, pick up today’s paper.

The next step in a major housing development in Battle has also been given the go-ahead. Read the full story in today’s observer on what it means for the town.
