DEVELOPERS are being invited to bid for the former Tilling Green site.
But owner East Sussex County Council is insisting all bids must include a community facility to replace the existing Tilling Green Community Centre.

The building provides a home for Rye Partnership, Rother Voluntary Action and Tilling Green Community Association.
