Investment in youth centres following review

Three busy youth centres in East Sussex are to get a £120,000 makeover from the County Council.

Following a review of all youth centres and buildings used by the council's Targeted Youth Support Service (TYSS), £120,000 is to be spent improving Heathfield Youth Centre, Hollington Youth Centre in St Leonards and The Joff in Peacehaven.

Detailed plans are being drawn up and the funds, from the council's Capital Programme, will be spent on improvements to the facilities and on refurbishment.

The decision follows a review of the centres TYSS currently uses which examined the costs of running buildings, the extent to which they are used, and their condition.

Cllr Nick Bennett, the council's Lead Member for Learning and School Effectiveness said: “This is about using our money wisely and where it is most needed. The three centres we will be investing this additional money in are three busy, important youth facilities which need to be improved.”
