Wanted: your views on pier promenade plans

With the reopening of the pier next year in mind, Hastings Borough Council is planning to remodel the promenade at White Rock and wants to hear your views on its proposals. These will be on display in the seafront meeting room of the White Rock Hotel on Thursday 11 June from 3pm to 7pm when you can let the council know what you think.

“A key aim of the proposals is to provide an attractive link from the pier to the entrance to the town centre at Robertson Street,” explains Cllr Dawn Poole, lead member for regeneration.

“The proposals include planting of mature palm trees along White Rock and the water feature will be revitalised with a water cascade and a stage for licensed buskers.  There will also be a projecting viewing platform and new beach access constructed and the promenade will be re-paved, including areas of hardwood raised platforms that reference the pier.

“At the junction of the promenade and pedestrian crossing from Robertson Street there will be a kiosk and terrace.”

“We want to know what you think, so come along to the White Rock and give us your views on the proposals. If you can’t get to this event plans can be viewed on the council’s website.”
