Public Realm Consultation

Rother District Council issued in a draft document for consultation concerning the Public Realm within the Rother District including RYE.

Vision & Strategic Objectives


Recognising the value of quality public realm to the community, and developing the ‘Broad Outcomes’ of the Corporate Plan, the Council’s vision for the public realm of the district is:​

“An attractive, well-maintained, quality public realm, delivered collaboratively by statutory bodies and stakeholders, that protects the locally distinctive character and identity of the district, whilst embracing the potential for new design to create public realm that fosters civic pride and contributes to regeneration aims.”

The Society has produced a response broadly welcoming the consultation document and its aspirations. But we are concerned about the timescales for the exercise and how it fits in with other consultations such as the new civil parking exercise which would change the street scene by introducing parking machines.
