FOI request (FOIR-343658203)
How much public money has Sea Space received
Requested Mon 21 June 2021
Responded Thu 19 August 2021
In the years since its creation your councillors have maintained oversight positions on the board of the companies which respectively constitute the original Sea Space (Hastings and Bexhill Renaissance Ltd, East Sussex Energy, Infrastructure and Development Ltd), and written into the constitutions of those companies is a clause allowing divulgence of pertinent data to the respective electing authority of the activities of those companies.
Essentially your councillors on the board are at liberty to share internal company information with you as a council, and you as the local authority have a legal responsibility to share it with the public when requested.
As such I would like to request:
1. A breakdown of how much public funding has been received by these companies since 2001.
2. How many new jobs have been created as a result of spending that money since 2001, along with a breakdown of how and where those jobs have been created.
3. How many new homes have been created directly or indirectly since 2001.
I would like the information in a written document, in plain English.
Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding.
Hastings Borough Council holds no information in respect of this request.
