CHRIS DODWELL (Liberal Democrat): I live in central St Leonards and run a building renovation firm. I was previously involved with the Hastings Pier and White Rock Trust.

Key issues: I want to work for a town which preserves its architectural heritage, creates beautiful public spaces, invests in the seafront and demands real quality and sustainability from new developments; a tougher line should be taken on over-development; concerned about fate of the Grove School site; strong support for environmentally friendly transport link between West St Leonards and the Old Town; I want a public debate on the future of Pebsham Tip.
