We are talking with Members in housing need to learn about the barriers they face in securing a place to call home.
HAMPDEN PARK SCHEMES
We are in the process of acquiring land In Hampden Park from Eastbourne Borough Council which is earmarked as suitable for affordable housing. We are talking with residents about a small housing scheme for the site. We are working with Boutique Modern, a Newhaven company making volumetric housing units.
A second site in Hampden Park is also being considered along similar lines.
