Local Councillor Colin Belsey has criticised Eastbourne Lib Dem council for letting local people down on affordable housing provision.
'Comparison figures for 2019/2020 housing completions do not put us in a good light,' Colin said, 'The figures issued by ESCC comparing affordable housing in the County show a woeful situation in our town, none completed in the year 2019/2020, when we have a large waiting list and growing problems coming when the lockdown comes to an end and the furlough scheme finishes'.
'I know as a new member on Eastbourne Homes that there are builds in the pipeline, but these will not come to finished houses for some years as most have not been to planning as yet. I appreciate that we have less land available in Eastbourne and this will continue to be a problem.'
'But we are letting a section of our residents down.”
