Request for Proposals for the West Hill Café in Hastings

Hastings Borough Council has launched a Request for Proposals for the redevelopment of the West Hill Café, including a call for an imaginative vision for telling the story of Hastings Castle.

Following the Expression of Interest launched in October last year, the council said it wants to appoint an experienced partner within the Cultural Assets sector, to develop, build, operate, and maintain the West Hill Café, using this as a springboard for innovative education and experience telling the story of Hastings Castle.

Creating a world-class attraction

The aim is to secure the most suitably qualified organisation or consortium whose proposal delivers, a vision for a world-class visitor attraction at Hastings Castle, an outstanding design scheme for the site, a detailed construction cost plan, a commercially sustainable business plan and comprehensive biodiversity enhancement strategies.

Cllr Julia Hilton, Leader of Hastings Borough Council, said: “Transforming the café and castle area into a leading destination is the flagship project of the Hastings Town Investment Plan. I am looking forward to seeing proposals that will engage the community in developing an exciting vision for the transformation of the West Hill Café site, that tells the story of this key part of our history. This aims to drive a step change in the south coast’s visitor economy and ensure that our town once again becomes a ‘must visit’ destination.”

Any questions or clarifications should be sent to by noon on 6 May 2024.

Submissions will be open from 25 March until noon on 3 June 2024.
