Plans underway to redevelop Hastings Town Centre

Hastings Borough Council is working with Homes England to develop a long-term regeneration plan for Hastings Town Centre

It said the plan will focus on bringing forward development opportunities for new homes, as well as commercial and leisure use, around Hastings station. It will also create better connectivity across the town and surrounding area.

The consultant team, Lambert Smith Hampton and Tibbalds, have been appointed to produce a Strategic Regeneration & Investment Framework (SRIF) that will sit alongside the council’s Local Plan. It will enable engagement with potential public and private developers, identify key areas for investment and opportunities, and provide a comprehensive plan for the town centre for employment, housing and planning interventions.

The work, funded by Homes England, will include community stakeholder engagement, establishing an oversight working body, capacity and expertise support for the council, in order to understand the funding opportunities available.

It said it will produce a realistic delivery plan for all regeneration activities, which will align with the £10m ‘Public Realm and Green Connections project’ to transform the town centre into a ‘garden town’. It will also build on previous work funded by Homes England to consider opportunities for the Station Gateway.

Cllr Paul Barnett, leader of the council, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside Homes England on this vital project to develop plans and opportunities for Hastings Town centre. I will ensure that this work links in with the wider regeneration plans for the town, including the Public Realm and Green Connections project. We really welcome the continued support from Homes England and aim to involve those living and working in the town centre in shaping a dynamic future for everyone.”
