What we have achieved so far
Thanks to this investment by the Home Office we have delivered some real and lasting changes to Central St Leonards!
Areas including Decimus Burton Way, the path down to Warrior Square Station and Church Road/DeCham Triangle have been cleared up, Goat Ledge and the old HSBC building in Norman Road will soon get some great new mural artwork, and we have plans to install planters to protect the pavements in Kings Road. ESCC have also promised to relay original York Stone paving in Kings Road to replace the temporary asphalt patches. Valentines Passage will soon have a new gate to secure it, and subject to various planning issues Laser Lane may also be gated in a few months’ time.

Our business survey received some great responses:
“With the most recent drug dealer on the street, several of us shopkeepers continually reported to Crimestoppers. He was eventually arrested and evicted. Good news all round!”
