Hastings development will have 'dramatic impact'

£72 million regeneration to include landscaping and tree lined roads

A development worth £72 million in Hastings, East Sussex, has been granted planning permission. The landscape architect for the scheme will be Chris Blandford Associates. Regeneration firm Sea Space commissioned the project. The Hastings & Bexhill Task Force set up Sea Space in 2003. The Station Plaza scheme, one of the biggest parts of the programme, includes landscaping, apartments, a health-care centre, offices and retail. Consultancy Scott Wilson is project manager and consulting engineer, while London firm Hopkins is lead architect. Associate landscape architect and project manager Nick Harper said the plan will include rows of hornbeams and other trees. Sea Space deputy director Keith Sadler said: “We’re delighted to get the green light from the planning board. This is a central plank of our regeneration programme. It will have a dramatic long-term impact on the economic fortunes of Hastings. We are looking forward to the next detailed stage of the work.”
