Regeneration has become a stand out focus for the Rother District Council’s regeneration team. Rother’s rural coastal setting and outstanding scenery masks significant structural weaknesses in the local economy.  Low wage levels, poor road and rail infrastructure, a dispersed rural population and an elderly demographic profile all provide significant challenges facing the Council in promoting the economic and social well-being of the district.

  • Rother is about to embark on a new regeneration strategy that will speak to the county wide Growth Strategy and replace Rother’s Covid Economic Recovery strategy. This will focus on place and skills, looking at our rural and coastal areas to best understand how we can grow infrastructure, businesses and communities to bring about social and economic change.
  • Levelling Up funding will enable new projects to take place across the district. For more information on Levelling Up please go to the links at the bottom of the page.
