Plastic coating peels off High Street benches

One of the benches in Uckfield High Street with plastic coating peeling off.

Plastic coating is peeling off benches installed in Uckfield High Street as part of the High Street improvement scheme in 2016.

Efforts are being made to find out whether the benches are still under warranty and what could be done to sort out the problem.

Uckfield town councillor Cllr Donna French raised the issue at a Strengthening Local Relationships Liaison Meeting last month. Town clerk, Holly Goring, said the bench outside W H Smith was particularly bad and had been reported some time ago to East Sussex Highways.
