Rocklands tree decision behind closed doors?

If the Aquila House planning officials get their way, the Rocklands ‘tree works’ planning application (HS/TP/16/00089) will be decided under delegated powers rather than go to the planning committee. Bernard McGinley asked why, but failed to get a satisfactory answer.

Hermit – a life on the margins

Hastings has its own legendary hermit, John Hancox, who lived in a cave in Ecclesbourne Glen for around fourteen years until his death in 1904. Sadly, homelessness is becoming an increasingly important issue in society, and now local community arts organisation, Radiator, has joined forces with the local wellbeing centre, Seaview, to produce a unique event based on John’s life. HOT reporter Cathy Simpson talked to Rebecca Child, who is leading the project along with Mary Hooper and Hilary Turner.

Pig’s ear causes sty in eye

As the campaign continues over damage to Hastings Country Park, the major eyesore that is the two-storey bunker on the East Hill is still there, a continuing blott on the landscape. There are other issues too, as Bernard McGinley found out when he attended a recent public meeting.
