Jerwood Gallery wins planning

We were delighted to be granted planning permission last night for the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings. There has been a great deal of local debate over the project, and the planning application seems to have set some kind of local record for the number of comments received - 365 in favour and 44 against. We were thrilled that it was in the end unanimously supported by the planning committee members.

We've had fantastic support from many local groups and individuals, so many thanks to everyone who has helped us in this process. We look forward to now developing the detailed design - the ambition is to start on site in spring 2010 and to open in early summer 2011.
