Hailsham Town Council operates a 24-hour phone line for residents to request an urgent repair for town council-maintained buildings and grounds.
The direct access facility is available out of normal working hours, before 9am and after 5pm, and for 24 hours during weekends and bank holidays. The number to call is 07500 686023.
This service is provided to deal with urgent repairs to town council-maintained properties and grounds, which arise when the council offices are closed.
Town Clerk John Harrison said: “Whilst the town council hopes that defects to our properties that would be considered likely to cause injury to residents would never occur, it is our responsibility to have an urgent repair contact number in operation for residents and to be prepared to take action to resolve such situations, should they arise.”
