Kent Coastal Touring Route

Why not work with other towns to establish a Kent Coastal Touring Route and make motorhome visitors welcome by providing designated overnight parking for them. Many motorhomers are retired and travel all year, they have the grey pound in their pocket which they can spend in our pubs, restaurants shops and attractions. They need to […]

Overnight Parking for Motorhomes

The south coast resorts and its beaches are popular with motorhome owning visitors but sadly overnight parking for short stays is sadly lacking. I know there are campsites but I do not need or want to use all their facilities. I like to tour, staying one night or two, visiting towns, villages and sites. I […]

Bathing Pool Site Regeneration

Every single local resident is likely to agree that we do not want concentrated housing on the Bathing Pool site. It is a prime spot that should be used for recreation and tourism, thus improving the area and creating a thriving hub for West St Leonards – not simply for developers to make money and […]

Travel

Make it easier to travel from here to london / cheaper. So we get more visitors as we are a lovely town but it’s sooooo expensive to get to! Like add it on oyster would be amazing! Also make the town centre bigger / more established as it looks really dated.

Sage poor people

Spend it all on benefits for poor people thay does not really want to find any job. Give them more and raise out taxes as they are well too low to cover homeless payday 😉

UK’s #1 Hub for Creatives

You have a huge number of creatives in Hastings who are working from home in physical isolation. You have a large number of young people who have limited job prospects and nothing to do after school hours. I’d look at a way to dynamise the community – create more Creative Hubs that encourage internships, apprenticeships […]

FIX THE ROADS

Sort out all the pot holes in the roads, they’re left for months and they just get worse, make use of the money and sort them out

Tree lined roads

Enhance our town by planting trees on pavements where space allows. A tree lined road is not just beautiful it combats emissions thus improving air quality and provides habitats for wildlife. It also prevents cars parking on pavements. Communities could take on the responsibility of watering young trees thus promoting good neighbourliness.

Roads!

I would suggest the money be spent on majority of roads in hastings to make them actually drivable on. The roads are disgusting full of pot holes! Also ruining people’s cars So will be money well spent I think everyone would agree !

Current state of roadways

The State of the Hastings roads. The road surfaces are awful and if investment into the town is available we must get the road quality to a better standard.tourist who drive down to Hastings often comment about the state of the poorly kept roads! Please sort out the potholes! It would seems the councils highways […]

Boat connections

As a seaside town it’s unbelievable that visitors cannot have a boat ride, we should have built a marina years ago. Many moons ago you could go across the channel from the pier. We really do need to be more adventurous, and we do need more affordable and decent housing. And how about a dotto […]

Miniature Railway

How about extending the miniature railway to the pier with stops along the way because people either visit the pier or the old town. It’s a long walk for children or the elderly.

Conquest and Town

Conquest Hospital is in dire need of an upgrade, I know of people who would rather stay at home than visit the hospital when needed due to the poorly run A&E, and the decaying building. Priory Meadow also needs a revamp, that place leaks more than the Titanic.

Some sort of tourist attraction

Hastings has a few arcades, but other than that, how does it still bring in coach after coach of tourists? To maintain this I believe more attractions should be build – maybe some form of leisure centre? Complete with bowling alley, water park, ice rink, cinema etc etc. Think about the amount of jobs it […]

Youth centres and homelessness

More funding for youth communities and support for children activities in the area. Kids clubs have to charge high prices to support the opening and maintain activities for families not allowing low income people to use such hubs. I find my self fundraising and lookibg for grants all the time to be able to offer […]

Digital Infrastructure

We have a disadvantage when trying to attract business and high paying jobs, because transport is poor and we are a coastal town. Let’s get a 1GB network infrastructure that will attract high tech businesses.

People in need

Invest the money back in to poverty, homelessness, stop people having to suffer and struggle every day, we don’t need materialistic nonsense and use it to actually help people who need it

Community is Key

I think we need people/facillities to help us build community…’vulnerable (so called but are they really…we need to work to peoples strengths) people can be engaged in the community and they can find their valued place in it….as Hilary Cottam (OBE, an innovator, author and social entrepreneur) puts it “embedding people in relationships with each […]

ROADS

These roads around here are some of the worst kept wherever we go. Had a pothole puncture just yesterday, the roads would make this a much nicer place to visit by car/road vehicle.

Art for an creative town

There are a few neglect walls in public areas like St Leonards marina & Hastings town center. They can be paint with graffitti or street painting in harmony with the environment to highlight the local artists and to add more value for the area.

A cleaner place!!

More bins! Solar powered compact bins. I’ve seen them in other towns and they’re great! The place was spotless. There is always rubbish everywhere and it attracts birds which now have a habbit of stealing people’s food, which no one likes. The town needs improvements to help make it a cleaner place. Building improvements would […]

Litter and homeless

Money should be invested in helping rough sleepers and getting them a better support network instead of pushing them away, more community spaces for local events that enrich the town and be educational. There also needs to be more bins around in general, I see so much litter around town despite the amount of bins […]

More summertime tourist attractions

Hastings doesn’t have a good road infrastructure so big businesses are a not going to happen. I believe we need to invest money in Tourist attractions, this could bring outside money to the town from larger cities. Making it possible for Larger chains, luxury brands and decent employers to grow in our empty town centre. […]

Homelessness

I would like to suggest that a large portion of this money goes to assisting the homeless or less abled people, this town is one of many that is riddled with homelessness and you see a large portion of them convening around town and st Leonard’s Warrior Square!! Something must be done to help improve […]

Waste

Fund more beach clean ups, we’re a seaside town and the amount of rubbish and waste is simply too much for me, a single person, to clean up everyday though I try my best. It’s putting a mockery on our special name as a sought out british beach holiday.

Road improvement

Put in a round about at junction road Hastings, so that when visitors to our town visit they don’t have to Queue on the A21. Junction road needs a new layout to ease congestion from both the A21 and A2100 from Battle.

Fix the Roads.

I have never known anywhere with such awful road surfaces… There are potholes everywhere in Hastings and St. Leonards making it awful to drive anywhere in the two towns.

Improve

I was born and bred in Hastings and I will NOT go in to the town cente. The shops are poor standard (because the people are hard-up). Get the unemployed out the town and in to training to get a job during the week rather than them loytering in the town centre, arguing and spitting […]

Affordable Housing

Invest this money in more affordable housing. We have a serious issue with the lack of housing for young people and there’s not sufficient support for the homeless long term, especially those with mental health issues. Please invest in these issues and the general quality of the town will massively improve.

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 […]

Save St Leonards Bathing Pool site

The old bathing pool site is a community facility and should be saved for the community, not sold off to developers. Use the space for tennis courts, a dog field, a lido, wild flower garden, Etc. Don’t build flats on it. It’s our green space. Flats would bring more cars, second homers, congestion. We need […]

Old Bathing pool site

Please do not build 5 tower blocks on the old bathing pool site! This site needs and can be something so much better to serve the existing community! Please rethink this planning! A Marina with shopping, cafes and some kind of homage to the beautiful art deco pool sadly no longer! Perhaps an art deco […]
