Lottery officials are visiting Hastings Pier today, after it was badly damaged by a major fire in 2010. The fact finding visit will help the Heritage Lottery Fund decide later this month whether to approve an £11m bid from the Hastings Pier and White Rock Trust to rebuild the structure.
Peter Chowney, from Hastings Borough Council, said: “We have seen some very welcome investment in Hastings over recent years, and there is a real positive feel about our future. Our seafront is a key part of that – it’s our shop window, it’s what investors see in our town."
