Lewes Lib Dems release:

Local Liberal Democrats have slammed the exclusion of Sussex towns from the government's recently announced funding for the Long Term Plan for Towns. Lewes, Newhaven, Seaford, Polegate and Eastbourne received no funding from the government’s £1.1 billion announcement.

Issues affecting the towns in Sussex include an acute lack of access to healthcare, spiralling costs including housing and crumbling infrastructure.

Liberal Democrats Parliamentary Candidate for Lewes, James MacCleary, pictured above, said: “To announce a ‘Long Term Plan for Towns’, and exclude Newhaven, Seaford, Lewes and Polegate is an insult to people in those places, and shows the hollowness of these proposals. What we have learnt from these announcements is the Conservatives have no plan to improve lives in our Sussex towns.

“The way government is handing out cash increasingly looks like bribes to voters they want to win, and is ignoring genuine need in our towns. Voters are seeing through it, and can see the Conservatives have no real plan for our towns, and are instead letting our infrastructure and health services crumble while the cost of living soars. This government is out of touch.

“Our local MP Maria Caulfield is a minister in the government that has chosen to ignore us and is failing our communities. It’s time we had an MP who stands up to fight for our area.”
