Colour and Cleanliness

“ I have been really impressed by how the team at Your Eastbourne BID have worked to integrate culture into the town centre. Both the Towner and the BID know that culture – of all types – is instrumental in supporting a town’s economy, and I know that the Towner, theatres and cultural sector working with the BID will inject colour into Eastbourne and benefit us all.”

Created and installed cross street banners for major events and activities

Removed graffiti tags across the town centre

We will continue to provide and maintain all the above


Injecting Colour:

We will ensure each BID area is coordinated with an attractive visual identity, using colour coordinated planters, signs, entrances and lighting to liven up the town centre

We will continue to provide improvements to the Christmas light display

Tackling Vacant Units:

We will work with agents and landlords to ensure that vacant premises are maintained and presented in a smart and tidy way so that they do not detract from the appeal of the area

We will continue our partnership work with Eastbourne Borough Council to identify and remove grot spots, graffiti tags, cigarette rubbish and fly tipping
