I believe the boss of he DGH has been taking too narrow a view (as does the Government).
The cost to the community involves the costs of travelling times taken to and from the destination, plus a realistic view of visitors’ costs of travel there and back, more use of resources such as petrol etc.
However, there is an even more telling cost of travel to and from Hastings. During the holiday periods the two lane road from the Sovereign roundabout can become very congested both ways, causing very considerable effects on travel times conveying patients to Hastings.
