Have your say

A 200 yard stretch of the A272 at Coopers Green north of Uckfield has been deeply flooded for several weeks.

And in spite of numerous calls and ‘tweets,’ local residents and councillors say absolutely nothing is being done. They say drivers have to veer into the opposing lane of the A-road and it cannot be long before there is a serious crash.

Cllr Michael Lunn, who represents Uckfield north on Wealden District Council, said: “I have received multiple complaints from local residents, and users of the A272 due to this flooding. I have also made many representations to the County Council’s highways department but once again, no response.
