Bid to turn Hastings offices into 32 homes


Offices could be demolished and turned into 32 homes if a planning application is approved by councillors next week.

A bid has been submitted to demolish the single-storey offices at Summerfields Business Centre, Horntye Park, Hastings, and replace them with ten three-bedroom houses and 22 one and two-bedroom flats, with associated access, parking and landscaping.

Eight of the 32 homes would be affordable.

Two letters of objection have been received by Hastings Borough Council listing surface water drainage, the impact on Summerfields Woods and construction noise as concerns.

Officers have recommended approval subject to conditions, including upgrading play facilities.

The meeting will be held at 6pm on Wednesday (May 25) at Aquila House, Breeds Place, Hastings.
