Picnic protest against the Bunker

The Save Ecclesbourne Glen group, which has led public opposition to the unauthorised Bunker built at Rocklands Caravan Park, has registered to make a submission to the hearing of the appeal by the Rocklands owner against the council’s enforcement order to have the building demolished.

The winners: from left, Labour's Terri Dowling and Tania Charman, and the Tories' Martin Clarke (images from Hastings and Rye Labour and Hastings and Rye Conservatifves respectively).

Now approved, the Archery Ground redevelopment will start with demolition of the main college building.

Last week’s planning committee meeting was lively, with controversial schemes for the Archery Ground and numbers 1 and 3 Chapel Park Road on the agenda. Bernard McGinley, who was among the throng at Hastings Town Hall, found grounds to wonder at some of the committee’s actions.
