Hastings Harbour – surprise proposal

Many people in Hastings Old Town and beyond were taken aback by the seemingly undemocratic and sudden way the proposal for a very large Marina on Rock a Nore was recently sprung upon them.

Show your love for the countryside and say NO to the North Bexhill Access Road

Local campaigners will gather on Valentine’s Day (Sunday 14 February) to say no to the proposed North Bexhill Access Road (NBAR). They will walk some of the route of the road, which runs for 2.4 kilometres, parallel to Ninfield Road, and stop for a photocall amongst trees threatened by the proposed road.

QGR tree-felling signals ‘need for real change’

This has not been a good month for the town’s green spaces – following council approval for the Queensway Gateway Road last month, contractors working for SeaChange Sussex have felled trees along a wide swathe through Hollington Valley where the road will run. This is an act of environmental vandalism, says Andrea Needham of Combe Haven Defenders.
