ECB in conjunction with HCC and Eastbourne Library are trialing an electronic noticeboard to provide an alternative information source for those who don’t use social networks. This trial is running in the window of the library and contains a series of screens with community information, including some information which will update automatically such as weather forecasts. Projects, events, services and other information will be featured, and we are keen to get feedback on what the community would find useful. Send us your thoughts here.Read More →

The Community Board will again ask Metlink to answer questions about the Eastbourne bus service before our next meeting on 21 June. Metlink still blames the lack of drivers on the reduced service and hasn’t yet committed to reinstating the 85x bus service.

We will also ask when Metlink will run bus services connected to the ferry service. And we are interested to know how many Eastbourne bus services are cancelled compared toRead More →

In 2014 the Eastbourne Community Board conducted a survey of Eastbourne and the Bays to gauge the wellbeing and satisfaction of the residents and to identify issues of importance to the community.

The data from the survey could be used by individuals, community groups and businesses to make Eastbourne’s voice heard in a larger government structure. Questions in the survey were designed to find out the priority residents placedRead More →

Starting this month (February) Wellington Water are duplicating a section of pipe from Barber Grove, down the middle of Randwick Road, to the Seaview Wastewater Treatment Plant. This will involve a trench along Seaview Road, and tunneling along Randwick Road. It will also require the (temporary) removal of the sculpture from Seaview Roundabout. Lanes will be kept open but those travelling between Eastbourne to/ from Wellington CBD/Petone may prefer using Port Road as a bypass.
