Rock A Nore traffic gridlock

Rock A Nore gridlock

Due to the traffic gridlock at Rock A Nore at times of high volume of visitors or residents, Kev Hill has started a petition on Change, to be sent to MP Amber Rudd, highlighting the issue and requesting help from ESCC. Zelly Restorick writes.

Knowing what's going on in our town is vital to our local democracy.

What’s the buzz in Hastings?

Our liberal democracy expects and indeed needs its citizens to be well-informed. Compared with the abundance of news on the national stage, however, we are less well served at the  local level. Nick Terdre reports on the Local News Matters campaign.

“Oi! SeaSpace / SeaChange / HBRL / whatever your name is: this land is our land”

Last Saturday saw a forgotten patch of land in Ore Valley become the centre of attention for the first time since the Broomgrove power station burned down 17 years ago. HOT’s Erica Smith was a volunteer steward. In between directing cars to the College car park, her thoughts turned to SeaSpace, SeaChange and the Great Battle for Neighbourhood Renewal. Scroll to the bottom of this article to find out how you can show your support for this brilliant community-led regeneration project.
