Wealden District Council Statement
Publish Date: 1 December 2022
Our council is fully informed and aware of the circumstances regarding the Home Office's decision to use a local hotel within Wealden to assist their efforts with accommodating unprecedented numbers of asylum seekers entering the UK.
Our officers are working closely with other agencies and voluntary groups to ensure the welfare of the asylum seekers and, at the same time, understanding and taking into account the concerns and interests of our residents.
