Fire fulfils fears for Glovers Farmhouse

Fire in the early hours of Friday 17 October destroyed most of Glovers Farmhouse, fulfilling the worst fears of groups which had raised concerns about the deterioration of the building, part of the area in which Sea Change Sussex has received outline planning permission to build Gateway Road and the first stage of the proposed Bexhill Innovation Park. Nick Terdre reports.

Where have all the newts gone?

Concerns about the fate of newts displaced by the construction of the Bexhill-Hastings Link Road have been raised by Combe Haven Defenders. However, attempts to get a satisfactory answer – or any answer – from the responsible body, Natural England, have so far failed. CHD’s Andrea Needham reports.

Bexhill’s road to prosperity

While the work on the Bexhill to Hastings Link Road remains on track for scheduled completion by spring next year, public transport improvements made possible by the link road are also expected to contribute to vastly improved transport communications between Hastings and Bexhill. The county is suffering its wettest winter for 20 years, and the link road would have been really useful last week when storm damage necessitated the closure of the A259 at Bulverhythe and the simultaneous rupture of Hastings-Bexhill rail services, writes Chris Cormack.
