Market Towns Regeneration

Market Town Partnerships and what they do

Market Town Partnerships can play a key role in the regeneration of their towns and are made up of people from the public, private and voluntary sector.  In Wealden the towns of Hailsham, Heathfield and Pevensey have all set up Town Partnerships or Community Action Groups.
