Questions for the Alliance

14 July 2023


Dear Leader,

I have asked these questions at the last two Crowborough Town Council meetings and despite promises of responses from alliance members I am yet to receive a reply.

Does the alliance plan to introduce car parking charges across the district?
Does the alliance plan to increase the charge for collection of garden waste?
Does the alliance support the upgrade to the pool and facilities at the leisure centre in Crowborough?


Dear Neil,

Thank you for your questions.  I note that, until May, you were the Finance Portfolio Holder at this council.

The Alliance does not have any current plans to introduce car parking charges across the District.

The garden waste service year starts on 1 August 2023, when the current charge of £55 per bin will be maintained.  The charge for the year from1 August 2024 will be reviewed as part of the annual review of all fees and charges in spring 2024 and so no decision has been made about it.

We have begun an in depth review of all the proposed strategic projects which we inherited from the administration of which you were part, some of which have been running for some time.  The Crowborough pool improvement is one of these.  Therefore, we have not made a decision about it either way.

Kind regards

Councillor James Partridge
