Operation Confront started this morning at 9.30am with a briefing attended by Luke Johnson and the BID ambassadors, along with Sussex Police, the Rough Sleeper Initiative and other partners.
This operation coordinated activity is happening as a result of the lobbying of the BID and is part of the town centre security panel that Luke Johnson is vice chair of.
The ambassadors will be on call every day until the 25th of April.
Businesses in Bolton Road have launched a petition calling on East Sussex County Council to revise their plans for the next phase of the town centre development.
Andy Spirou, owner of Urban Ground, which this year celebrates it’s tenth birthday, said, “We welcome the efforts of East Sussex County Council to improve this road as part of the latest town centre redevelopment.
“We want to work positively with East Sussex County Council as they finalise plans. However, we do feel that without revisions, this is a missed opportunity. We also know the strength of feeling within the area. So, please do sign our petition either online or by popping into Urban Ground on Bolton Road and South Street or De Ja Vu.”
