Rother is benefitting in three ways:

  • Levelling Up Fund: this was a competitive grant programme to which Rother District Council made a successful bid for two capital schemes, the De La Warr Pavilion and Sidley Community Hub.
  • Levelling Up Partnership: run by the Department of Levelling UP, Communities and Housing (DLUCH), this £20m investment works directly with projects across the district. These include specific projects in Rye, Battle & Bexhill, as well as Rother-wide projects.
  • Long Term Plan for Towns; 10-year funding into Bexhill, supporting the development and implementation of a partnership led investment plan. The Bexhill Town Board has its own website.
