Hastings city centre has undergone a transformation over the past five years, and the vibrancy that’s been injected over that time is set to continue over the next 10 years.
In 2013, council adopted the Hastings City Centre Strategy, setting out an aspirational 20-year plan for the district’s business and commercial heart.
Significant public consultation was undertaken in the preparation of this strategy, and the main themes of the feedback were a desire to retain our sense of place, heritage character and amenity, establish more green open spaces, improve vibrancy, enhancing retail diversity, putting on events and activity, inner city centre accommodation, a compact city centre.
This has guided the activities that have since been undertaken through the Hastings City Centre Revitalisation Plan.
The city’s landlords and businesses have been on the journey as well, significantly investing in our city and creating the exciting buzz that is happening – including new bars, offices, eateries, and craft and homeware stores.
Ten years on from the release of the strategy, thoughts are now turning to what will happen over the next 10 years to further enhance the city centre, making it even more attractive and inviting to visit and spend time in.
