Some big ideas are shaping up….
Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust is proposing a community self build of housing, work space, the Green-way and other facilities, using a radical approach called “Organisation Workshop” with 80-100 local people directly contributing to making it happen.
The BUD (Bottom Up Development) team is growing steadily as local residents get active and interested to play a part in reshaping the old power station site.
“What would you like to see happen?..
Your ideas and thoughts are important to us so that we can work together to build the type of development you feel is most suited to this connecting space within the valley.
It deserves a new start after years of abandonment and neglect.
We need help with many jobs on site working alongside a growing caring group of local people where everyone is welcome.
General opening hours for April:
Monday – 10 to 4pm
Wednesday – 2 to 4pm
Friday – 12 to 4pm
Saturday – 10 to 4pm
We are dependent on our hard-working volunteers, and need at least two people at the site to open it, so these times can vary, and are weather dependent, and will change if there are specific events planned on the same date.

The area marked in red above is the disused power station site at Broomgrove. The site has presented a challenge to successive developers over the last 30 years.
