"Torfield is a quiet scheme situated in Hastings Old Town, close to the high street, beach, doctors surgery, churches, and bus routes.

We don't operate a direct waiting list - you'll need to register with the local authority which is Hastings. You must have a local connection to this area. The local authority will then consider your application and provide you with a priority banding depending on your personal circumstances. You can then bid on the properties you are eligible for."
