We were pleased that our local MP Maria Caulfield could join us for breakfast today. Lots of positive news with Newhaven becoming an Enterprise Zone from 1 April which should open up new business opportunities for the town and keep retail business rates low. Interest has been expressed in some of the empty retail outlets and, hopefully, there will be signs of take-up soon.
Maria also announced that the rail service had improved (82%) although there was still much room for further improvement as this area remains behind the rest of the country on 98%. Plans to cut congestion on the A259 between Bishopstone through #Newhaven with, hopefully, some solutions in the pipeline.
Do join us for breakfast on any Wednesday at 7am at Peacehaven Golf Club – good networking opportunities and great company.
