What we do

East Sussex Strategic Partnership (ESSP) tackles the issues that matter to local people through community planning and partnership working across the county of East Sussex.

Our main tasks are to:

  • Develop and deliver the Sustainable Community Strategy for East Sussex, Pride of Place, a long-term plan for improving quality of life for those living and working in East Sussex.
  • Deliver the action plans which aim to tackle the priorities set out in Pride of Place.
  • Report on our progress to local partners and the general public.
  • Provide leadership on countywide issues where no other appropriate organisation or partnership can be identified.

To achieve this, we work closely with our wider partners including the district and borough Local Strategic Partnerships in East Sussex, Countywide Thematic Partnerships and the East Sussex Assembly.
