Renovation plan is welcomed

I WAS delighted to learn, via your article, about the involvement of the YMCA in using Government funding in Hastings in order to renovate private sector accommodation so that it can be made available to local people.

I am also glad that the council has decided to support this move, after Cllr Chowney was initially dismissive of this potential funding stream.

Hastings has a dearth of social and affordable housing that successive governments have not yet properly addressed.

Credit where credit is due on this particular scheme.

I look forward to the council not only making more housing available, but acknowledging where the Government has provided a positive input.
