Countdown to pier decision

Government approval for the council’s proposed compulsory purchase of Hastings pier should be decided soon, and in November the Heritage Lottery Fund is due to rule on the application for funds to rebuild the pier. Well before the end of the year, then, the local community will know if the project to restore the pier is to be realised. The signs are looking good, Nick Terdre writes.
