The council is backing a new kiosk on the seafront above Bottle Alley

The seafront promenade above Bottle Alley in Hastings will soon have a new kiosk after the council agreed to fund it.

Hastings Borough Council’s cabinet approved £79,000 of funding for the kiosk at a meeting on Monday, April 4.

“The council is keen to enhance the facilities for residents and visitors to the town,” the minutes of the meeting said.

“As part of the seafront strategy, we have made a commitment to new kiosks on the promenade that link to the Bottle Alley refurbishment (concrete repairs due to be completed by the end of March) and will help animate this long stretch of seafront.”

Planning permission for a circular, concrete kiosk adjacent to the weather station was obtained in January, 2015.

Construction of the kiosk will only begin once a operator has been found – nine companies were interested in October, 2014.
