Public toilets are very hit and miss

I have read with interest the views in relation to the proposal to close public toilets. Since moving here in 2009 I have always felt that the public toilet facilities were very hit and miss. Either poorly signed or poorly maintained, particularly those on the seafront near Warrior Square.

Install cameras along Link Road

I agree totally with your correspondent’s letter regarding the amount of litter on the link road, although I bet not many people notice it considering the speed at which many travel along it.

Path is perilous for the elderly

We hear a lot about heath and safety. However it would seem that the highways department are showing a callous disregard to the safety of elderly, sick and disabled old people who attend the Isobel Blackman Centre in Winding Street.

Are they serving the community?

Do the councillors of Hastings think they are serving the community by irrevocably closing the toilets in Harold Place and Ore then possibly selling the sites for a quick buck? (Do we really want more estate agents and betting shops?)

Self-certification does not work

I fear that allowing Kier ‘self-certification’ of its operational efficiency within the areas of refuse collection and street cleaning in the Old Town is at least one step too far. Especially when allied to HBC’s clamour to remove all public reporting and management to its ‘My Hastings’ digital platform.

Policy does not support services

People complaining about town centre toilet closures may not understand that we have an elected government which clearly stated a policy of low taxes and small state.

I have found myself being ashamed of the people of Sussex, not all of them but those that chose to speak out and march against D Trump.
