Jerwood construction
The Jerwood site began construction in 2010. The site will create a permanent home for the Jerwood Art Collection, The Jerwood Gallery, and a new regional venue for the Jerwood Visual Arts programme on the Stade in Hastings, a 60 seat café, new toilets, and seafood kitchen, and a large open space for public events. The open space will include five circles representing the circles made by horse which used to winch the boats up the beach, before mechanisation.

The project caused much controversy because it was to be built on the only coach park in the Old Town, which brings in many tourists to the amusements adjacent.

The buildings design will be finished in black panelling similar to the surrounding fishing net huts, and two thirds of the site will be public open space.

The site could be consider officially complete on 17th March 2012 when the gallery was opened.
