Still time to have say on how Bexhill should be governed


Residents have just days left to have their say on how Bexhill is governed.

The first phase of a consultation into a community governance review of the town closes on Monday, March 27.

The review is considering all options for future governance of the town, including the possibility of setting up an area committee of the district council or new town or parish councils.

It will also examine the role existing institutions could play in governing Bexhill.

Following completion of the first stage, a series of draft proposals will be published which will be subject to further consultation later in the year before a final decision is taken by full council in December.

Cllr Martin Kenward, district council deputy leader and cabinet member for Bexhill affairs, said: “Details of the responses so far are available to view on our website and it is important that as many people as possible share their views during the process.”

Views can be submitted by emailing, joining the discussion on Twitter at or writing to Bexhill Community Governance Review, Rother District Council, Town Hall, Bexhill-on-Sea, TN39 3JX.
