The 2018 survey of over 1000 East Sussex businesses was communicated to ACES in January this year. It measured the most important features business people look for when deciding on their business location.
On the plus side those surveyed said that local amenities, cultural attractions and schools & colleges were the top 3 features that they like about East Sussex. However on the negative side the biggest concern raised was the local road network.
For this reason East Sussex County Council are working closely with ACES to push for a new dual carriageway north of the existing railway line, as well as improvements to the existing road.
The £3 million route study has been completed and we are eagerly awaiting the results.
