The Project will deliver 28 new incubator units on a currently redundant site which was identified for industrial development in the Hastings Local Plan, which was adopted in 2015.

The site is ideally located on a well-established industrial estate.  The industrial estate is within easy reach of the two major trunk roads (A259 and A21) providing ideal access for business employees and visitors, has on-site parking and nestles alongside and close to potential supply chain contacts.

The 28 new incubator units will range from 322 sqft to 344 sqft in size, with a total area of 9,558 sqft. The LGF funding will be used towards the development and building costs of the incubator units.
