Build on what you’ve got
Relatively dense and urban in parts, a new neighbourhood can help define the park edges. The development will prioritise greenery and freedom of movement, retaining the scale of open space that makes White Rock special.
A spectacle of diversity
Multiple uses for a healthy mix of spaces will help build a well-used and resilient town. Rethinking and improving parks and public spaces, homes, workplaces, clubs and venues will reinstate civic pride in residents.
Build for tomorrow, today
New ways of living can be tested today, to build a healthy, inclusive and sustainable community for the future. However, White Rock will not change overnight; local people need to take ownership in the transformation of their town.
Celebrating culture and creativity
The formal and grassroots creative energy of Hastings can be consolidated by rich cultural programming in new, purpose-built venues, or public space. A renewed cultural offer enhances life for locals, as well as creating a destination for tourists seeking an authentic Hastings experience.
