The Big Fill campaign claimed its first major success after East Sussex County Council announced that it would fix potholes within 28 days.
Former guidelines gave the Council up to a year to repair roads and so the Meridian Branch Labour Party and parliamentary candidate Nancy Platts started a campaign to improve the service on offer.
The announcement comes just days after the ESCC announced it was seeking additional funding to add to the £45 million fund set aside for road repairs.
Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven, Nancy Platts, had called for action from the council.
Nancy said: “It’s fantastic that East Sussex County Council have now committed to repairing our roads more quickly.
“Many local roads are in a poor state of repair and I will continue to fight for Peacehaven’s roads to be brought up to scratch.”
