Peter Jones (Observer 27 July) appears to be suggesting that ‘people outside of Hastings and Bexhill’ are not entitled to have a say about the proposed Bexhill-Hastings Link Road.
But surely those living in other parts of East Sussex who are facing cuts in essential services have a right to protest against the high cost of this extravagant
project. They are appalled that the council, which has already wasted
£15m of their money on the road, now plan to spend £50m more on it.
They dislike the idea of good money being thrown after bad.
