You must be choking

Local campaigners recently united to raise awareness of the risks to air quality by the building of the Queensway Gateway road. Earlier this year, following the case Gabriel Carlyle brought to the High Court, Hastings Borough Council – prior to the court case – agreed to withdraw plans for the road, as it would breach current UK and EU directives on air pollution.

Sea Change gives undertaking on tree-felling

Sea Change Sussex has given an undertaking not to cut down the remaining two trees on the route of the Queensway Gateway road unless planning permission for the road is restored.

It turns out that authority for this action came from East Sussex County Council. Nick Terdre reports.
