Streets Ahead

The Streets Ahead project team of officers and Councillors has been working with and visiting the towns and larger villages within Wealden, looking at their shops to find out how the Council can work better with them to support their communities and their regeneration efforts.

Have a look at our Streets Ahead Newsletter Summer 2016 (pdf) you will see a lot of  local case studies and help and advice for your business in the high street. If you would like to feature in our next newsletter, please contact us by the information below.
