Business relocation incentives

A vibrant town needs a diverse range of employers. Use the money to fund things such as first-year rents, fit-out costs, employee relocation packages, and start-up marketing support. For this investment to be self-sustaining it has to be spent on things that can become commercially viable. Focus on businesses that might connect the town more to the sea. Also look at issues of crime and anti-social behaviour and see what capital investment might be made to design out these problems.

  1. Infrastructure will improve Hastings. It is the only main seaside town on the south coast not to have a dual carriageway leading to it. An hour and a half to do 40miles up to the M25 needs addressing. Also faster train links to London. 2 hours on average to get to central London. Approx 60 miles!

  3. Adding better links through transport to outside towns and London, faster trains and better access along the A21, enabling people to access the motorway with more ease will create links for business and investments.

  4. The biggest obstacle for business investment in Hastings and the surrounding area are the transport links. Some of this money could be spent to identify reasonable and responsible investment in transport links both within Hastings – The link between Queensway and the A21 as one example to reduce congestion on the Ridge West and also on making more of the A21 dual carriageway. Faster rail travel is possible as demonstrated by the Hastings Express services and extending these in to peak time services should be explored. With improved transport links to the town, private investment will flood in with the right incentives.
