Hastings BID partners

East Sussex County Council
We work with East Sussex County Council to address issues affecting the look and feel of the town centre, including any issues with street furniture and the installation of the Christmas lights.

Hastings Borough Council
We work very closely with their teams in Licensing, Street Cleaning, Marketing team, Regeneration, Enviromental House, Housing, Foreshore and Community Safety. The Revenues team also look after our levy bills.

Safer Hastings Partnership
The Safer Hastings Partnership works particularly closely with the Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) side of Hastings BID. Working together, we aim to create a safer environment in our town centre. One recent project includes the public space protection order.

Sussex Police
We are in regular discussions with Sussex Police regarding issues raised to us by town centre businesses. The DISC reporting system used by the BCRP for anti-social behaviour is also linked to the Police. 

Brighton and Hove BCRP
The Brighton and Hove BCRP is an award-winning BCRP scheme. We are working closely with them to make changes to our own Barwatch and Shopwatch schemes.

Safe Space
Safe Space is funded by the NHS and is run by a group of volunteers and qualified first aiders. They provide first aid and a safe space for anyone who needs it on a night out. They are based at His Place Church on Robertson Street.
