A rise in council tax and cuts of millions of pounds have been discussed by the Cabinet of East Sussex County Council today (24 January).

It’s been recommended the full council approve a 4.99% hike in council tax – to include a 3% levy to fund adult social care – and meet savings targets of £17million in the next year, when they meet next month.

They’re pledging more money for pavements and roads and to continue with the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Eastbourne Buzz caught up with Councillor David Elkin, lead member for resources, after the meeting:
