Hastings Harbour proposal: Anne Scott and Peter Chowney offer differing views

Anne Scott, Chair of Old Hastings Preservation Society, gives HOT’s Chandra Masoliver her views on the Hastings Harbour proposal, raising important questions about local democracy and the relationship between the local council, the county council, the developers and ourselves, the electorate.
