Hastings Harbour Development Proposal: some local peoples’ views

HOT’s Chandra Masoliver asks local residents Dick Edwards, Lucinda Oakes and Kerry Phillips for their views on The Harbour Development Proposal. Dick is the Chair of Hastings Old Town Residents’ Association (HOTRA). Lucinda is an artist, she is a member of Hastings Motor Boat and Yacht Club (HMBYC), where she painted the mural on the outside wall, and feels passionately about Rock a Nore and the Old Town. Kerry is Activities Co-ordinator at Queen Mary’s Nursing Home and Mulberry House, St Leonards-On-Sea. She enjoys kayaking from Rock a Nore beach.
