Lewes District Green Party release:

Green Party MP Caroline Lucas visited Seaford last week to launch the Green Party’s campaign for local council elections, which will take place in May this year and hear first hand about untreated sewage discharge by Southern Water into local rivers and seas.

Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion, said: “It was fantastic to see such a big turnout at the event, and the energy and commitment towards making the local Green Party the largest party on Lewes District Council.

“I also visited Seaford beach, where there have been shocking levels of raw sewage discharge hitting national headlines. Local Greens have already done so much work on ensuring cleaner water, including making the council the first in the UK to hold a water company to account on sewage discharge from new developments. The local elections are a vital opportunity to elect more Green councillors, and deliver the change our communities and climate need over the next decade.”

Becky Francomb, Seaford campaigner and resident who also spoke at the launch said: “It was fantastic to have Caroline Lucas visit. She talked about everything she is doing in Parliament to oppose the scrapping of environmental laws, and also the reputation our local Greens have nationally in tackling these issues. Coming just a week after the Dirty Water protest, this visit could not have felt more important.”

Ezra Cohen, Seaford campaigner and resident said: “Caroline Lucas also talked about some of the amazing work Greens have done, insulating local housing, making council tax fairer, supporting the most vulnerable through the cost-of-living crisis and standing up for residents against a broken planning system.”
