URGENT reminder re: Disposal West Marina

February 21, 2019 5:10 PM

West MarinaYour objection must arrive before noon on Friday 1 March 2019

If you want to object to the HBC proposal to dispose of the old bathing pool site (yes, HBC thought we would miss this if they referred to it as 'open space'), but have not yet done so, you can now send your objection directly to the Chief Legal Officer by email.

This notice was hidden deep inside the page of the Hastings Observer because a notice of 'disposal' is required by law, under SECTION 123(1)(2a) of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACT 1972. Approval must occur before the old bathing pool site can be leased to the developers. So the council is desperate to have approval granted without delay. Once this is granted the lease can be signed and planning will begin in earnest.

Your objection must arrive before noon on Friday 1 March 2019
