IF Hastings Borough Council grants the application to build an indecently large number of flats on the site of the old art college in Archery Road, it will be acting in direct defiance of the expressed wishes of the residents.
We did not elect a Labour council so that it could impose this monstrously unsuitable development on our environment.
I’ve always believed that it was the purpose of an elected borough to serve the electorate, not to wreck their surroundings.
Will it please take some notice of our protests? Or have we got to withhold our council tax en masse before it sees sense?
