To actively and equitably represent all Seaford stakeholders in achieving the Neighbourhood Character, values and ambitions of the community for the Seaford area as identified in the 2012 and later Local Area Plans (LAP), derived from community workshops and through ongoing community consultation,
such as our Community Survey
Over the past few years, members of the Seaford Housing Action Coalition (SHAC) have been concerned to learn of people sleeping rough, including in their cars, in the Seaford area and the difficulties and dangers they face.
In response, they have tried to find out more about this problem and possible solutions. The result is the report called: 'Sleepless in Seaford'.
They would now appreciate receiving your thoughts on the report, in particular regarding possible responses to the problem.
A 1-page and 3-page Executive Summary have been prepared and are downloadable at the above link.
