Seaford Town Council is pleased to announce that the election votes have been counted and the results are in, with the successful election of five new town councillors for Seaford.
Further to the resignation of five former councillors back in August the by-elections, which were administered and managed by Lewes District Council, were held on Thursday 27th October in the four effected wards. Full details of the elections can be found on the District Council's website. The successful candidates are as follows:
Seaford Central ward: Maggie Wearmouth and Terry Goodman
Seaford North ward: Cheryl White
Seaford South ward: Nick Freeman
Seaford West ward: Bill Webb
The Town Council is now back to its full quota of 20 councillors. The new councillors will be undergoing an induction over the coming weeks, including training sessions alongside other councillors. The Full Council is then due to meet on Thursday 10th November to discuss various items of business, including the appointment of a Deputy Mayor of Seaford and the filling of other positions.
The Autumn edition of the Council’s newsletter will include a short profile on each of the new councillors. Contact details for each of the councillors are available on the Council’s website at www.seafordtowncouncil.gov.uk
Further to the adoption of its Strategic Objectives earlier in the year, the Council has exciting projects for the town in the pipeline. These include development plans for the Seafront, Martello Fields and Crouch Gardens respectively. The purpose and use of South Hill Barn is also being reviewed to make the site a facility that can be used and an asset for the town. Council Officers are in the early stages of looking at installing log cabins near Seaford Head Golf Course and The View, to increase the package that is being offered to visitors of both facilities.
There are various methods available to keep up to date on the work of the Council and project progress; the website is regularly updated, as is the Council’s Facebook page, or to receive updates direct to your email account, please sign up to the email distribution list by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
The Council welcomes on board its new members and looks forward to the remaining two and a half years of the four year term ‘Working Together for Our Town!’
