#JaneEyreProject – a town celebrates a book

St Leonards is gearing up to fête one of our great nineteenth century novels in a unique fashion, capitalising on the wealth of artistic talent and creative skills in the area. Gail Borrow of ExploreTheArch theatre company is the catalyst who has inspired a whole community to celebrate a novel written 170 years ago.

Park Beck as it is - a "characterful house," according to Chris Lewcock.

Changes to Park Beck application cause concern

Regal Care Homes and its developer, Penson have amended their proposal for an ’extra care home’ at 21 Upper Maze Hill, suggesting that this makes it more acceptable to local residents who objected to the original proposal. However, the planning department does not intend to test this claim by reconsulting. This is one of a number of concerns which have arisen over the handling of the amended proposal. Nick Terdre reports.

Archery Ground developers get their way

Cabinet ministers and others agree that the Archery Ground in St Leonards-on-Sea is part of a site of national importance. Hastings Borough Council is less impressed, and their relentless indulgence of developers has continued anyway. Following approval by the planning committee of owner Gemselect’s request for changes, Bernard McGinley wonders what happened to good housing and St Leonards.
