49.3% of the council’s suppliers are located within the South East with 28.05% being based in Wealden, and

65.31%, or £17.6 million of the council’s expenditure was with small and medium enterprises, which is in excess of the Government’s target of 25%.

This represents a 40%, or £5.02 million, increase from the previous financial year.

In the same period 86% of spend within the district boundary was with SMEs.
