ResponseQ1 - We have no defined geographical boundary for St Leonards (St Leonards-on-sea is a post town of the Borough of Hastings), and consequently we do not hold any information in relation to the population of "St Leonards". Population statistics are issued by the Office of National Statistics but it possible to access population information for Hastings Borough via East Sussex County Council's 'East Sussex in figures' (ESiF) website.Here population statistics can be found at borough, ward and below ward level.http://eastsussexinfigures.org.uk/webview/welcome.htmlQ2 - We are the borough of Hastings. St Leonards is an integral part of our town, as is Ore, Silverhill, Hollington, Broomgrove, the Old Town, etc. But there are no formally defined boundaries for these areas, they are all legally all are part of Hastings.
