This is a ground breaking devolution package and funding for community projects will help further the ambitions to spread opportunity more equally.

The rolling out of Levelling Up Partnerships will provide bespoke place-based regeneration over 2023-24 and 2024-25.

This funding is in addition to the £19million already awarded to Rother District Council by central government in January this year, to help transform the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill and create new community facilities in Sidley.
