Bottle Alley Lights up!

Hastings Borough Council has replaced some 500 metres of broken lighting with new state of the art equipment that is programmable for special effects – and can be synchronised to music to create a wonderful sound and light spectacle. 

Cllr Kim Forward, lead councillor for regeneration and culture said: “The council would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and commitment to this project. It is an absolutely magical walk along the beach that can be enjoyed year round!”

The new lighting was installed as part of a project to rejuvenate the historic Bottle Alley and create welcoming and exciting space for residents and visitors alike. Bottle Alley, located on the seafront between Warrior Square in St Leonards and Hastings pier, is open to the public as a thoroughfare.

    I hope this wont detract from the night sky, and is restricted to the occasional special event.
    “Decorative lighting” is part of light pollution, just the same as any other lighting.
    There are fewer and fewer places for stargazing in Hastings.
    It was suggested to have sessions on our lovely underused Pier, but it was never included in any schedule.
    How much did the lighting cost, and which budget did it come from?
