The Landmarks Trust
The Landmarks Trust is a co-operative initiative put together in the late 1990s by the community and Hastings District Council to promote Hastings image, identity and sense of place, and to foster civic pride.
The Landmarks Trust also act as an advocate for the community by lobbying and working with Council on issues of importance to the trust.
Four key areas drive the passion of the Landmarks Trust members:
- Art in public places
Each aim feeds into the Landmarks philosophy of making Hastings a better place to live, enjoy and be proud of.
We believe community input is vital and value the unique contribution Council makes in adopting the Landmarks’ philosophy. Each time we select a project, referencing our four key categories, we consider whether its final outcome can be improved through:
- Strong public participation
- Good design that pays attention to detail
- Use of design themes and quality materials that are responsive to who we are and our communities’ journeys
A little Landmarks makes a big difference: Roy's Hill Reserve, city centre and historic façades
