Nick and Norman at Station Plaza – with the Hastings Observer to hand!

Following the publication in the Hastings Observer of the plans for new student accommodation at Station Plaza, Lib Dem MP for Lewes and Home Office Minister Norman Baker stopped off in the town centre to see the potential impact of the development.

Local campaigners are not only concerned about design issues and the way the planning process has been handled, but also the potential impact of the building on the proposed Greenway town centre link.

Lib Dem candidate for MP Nick Perry said, “Whilst he was in town I wanted to show Norman the potential of this scheme, and members of the Hastings Greenway Group briefed us on progress made to date. But no doubt we could move faster towards making the Greenway a reality if the Council really put its weight behind the scheme and helped lead the work to source other seams of capital investment.”

Norman Baker backs the Hastings Greenway. He said,

“Nick Perry is a top-notch local campaigner and I am delighted to support his fight for a greener and cleaner town centre. I have long campaigned on environmental issues myself, and the potential contribution of the Greenway the town centre in Hastings is substantial. I hope local people will get behind it, and Nick is right to call on the Labour Council to find external funding and deliver it.‎”

    I remember that the area near to the station Plaza site featured in the picture was designated for affordable housing (shared or part ownership). This was part of the plan when the college was built before relocation from Archery Road. Is affordable housing off the agenda now?

      I think it might be Maria. Having said that, the site has recently been sold on, so the new developer’s plans are not entirely clear… We wait for further information from the Council.
