I WRITE to agree with Mr J Cooper (Letters, November 4) about the disgraceful mess at Station Plaza.
The Observer was good enough to publish my letter on the same subject on April 29.
The fundamental problem with Mr Cooper’s view is that no one with any authority to repair the damage being done to Hastings by neglect of this public space will recognize that there is anything wrong with it.
In a letter to the Observer, also on April 29, Cllr Peter Chowney, lead member for regeneration at Hastings Borough Council, states that Station Plaza and Sussex Coast College ‘far from looking a mess, ...are looking fine’.
It’s no wonder that with people like this involved Hastings continues to get knocked back when applying for additional Government regeneration funding.
