Local MP visits Hastings Observer building

Local MP Amber Rudd recently visited the Hastings Observer Building, where White Rock Neighbourhood Ventures (WRNV) are hoping to put the Observer Building to immediate productive use and to protect the building as a community asset.

Amber met with Beth Woolf, Joint Project Manager and Coordinator of WRNV and Jess Steele, Director of WRNV to discuss exciting plans for regeneration and to bring the building back into use after 34 years.

Amber commented, “I was thrilled to be shown around the Observer Building, where there are plans to develop a workspace, homes and leisure facilities. It is fantastic to see this project taking place in the heart of Hastings”

White Rock Neighbourhood Ventures commented, “It was good to show Amber Rudd around the Observer Building and the other local capped-rent projects - existing and planned. Both as the Hastings MP and in her role for DWP she liked our approach to ‘squeezing’ the building for life-changing opportunities for local people and businesses. We hope she will be able to help.”
