Question 15/21

Question:

I note there are comments about the reinstatement of the fountains adjacent to the Del La Warr Pavilion and understand the cost maybe around £300k? I also read that RDC cannot afford the repairs. Isn’t it time that RDC considered carrying repairs to the Landgate in Rye if the no money is to be spent on the fountain folly? (06/07/2021)

Answer:

As a designated ancient monument the Council will continue to maintain and repair the Landgate in Rye, in line with its obligations. We are working with the Town Council and other local partners to determine future options for the Landgate and exploring ways it can provide greater benefit to the residents of Rye. In relation to the water fountain in Bexhill the Council continue to explore affordable options to bring this back into use. (06/07/2021)
