Representation ID: 21752

Received: 26/03/2015

Respondent: SeaChange Sussex

Representation:

Sea Change Sussex appreciates and agrees with the PBA Viability Assessment that the development of employment land, save for retail, is non- viable, which reinforces our own economic assessments. There is a lack of Class A employment space in the Hastings/Bexhill area compared with the regional picture, commercial development to address this disparity has not been forthcoming due to the lack of financial returns on investment. Sea Change Sussex has only been able to bring forward development in the Bexhill area with considerable support and funding from the public sector.
