Do you want this beach to turn into something like Brighton Marina?

There is a proposal to develop a marina complex by Hastings Harbour Quarter Ltd, which threatens to erect a high rise concrete structure just off the beach below the cliffs at Rock-a-Nore in Hastings Old Town, with at least 1300 high value homes, along with a harbour and berths for up to 600 leisure boats. The proposal would also require widening of access roads and building commercial facilities such as shops and restaurants on the current beach. More details can be found in this Hastings Online Times article.

Please sign the petition below. The Hastings Green Party will email you updates on matters relating to this development.

Petition

We call upon Hastings Borough Council to cease co-operation with Hastings Harbour Quarter Ltd on their proposal to develop a marina complex on the beach at Hastings Old Town, including at least 1300 homes.

We believe this project would do irrevocable harm to some of the most precious assets of Hastings. These include the Rock-a-Nore cliffs, the Stade with its 1000 year old fishing beach, the medieval Old Town and the historic sites of Hastings Castle and East and West Hill. It would destroy the character of one of the best loved parts of our town. The site is completely inappropriate for such a massive development and the housing will almost certainly be unaffordable to local people.

    This proposal will create a lot of uncertainty and stress for people living and working in this area, for the financial benefit of a few individuals. Total waste of public money.

    Rock a Nore beach is beautiful. This marina would be ugly, damage the ecosystem, pollute the water and be completely inappropriate for the proposed position on the edge of the Old Town.

    I have strong bonds with this area and it saddens me to think the council would consider over-developing it with unaffordable housing, destroying its historic character.

    I am outraged about how much of this has been planned behind closed doors

    This would create a catastrophic mess – for Traffic, for fishing, for the local environment, for tourism This is just a financially driven waste of resources that will inevitably cost tax-payers and cause a rift in the town – All for Amber Rudds silly brothers ego ….
