Grand Designs in Fort Lane

19 Jan 2023

Seven new affordable homes are currently being built by Eastbourne Borough Council on a previous disused industrial area. The modular buildings, designed by Boutique Modern (who have been featured on the popular Channel 4 show “Grand Designs”) will speed up the process of building, and save significant costs for tenants as the latest energy saving tools are used. The seven homes include five terraced homes, two semi-detached houses along with gardens and parking. It is the second modular housing development following the success on Langney Road. Councillor Margaret Bannister said “This is another great example of identifying a redundant brownfield site and putting it to great use by developing much needed affordable homes. “The modular development we opened in March has proved hugely popular with tenants and I’ve no doubt these homes will be a resounding success too. We need help from government to deliver more of this housing and I implore the new prime minister to prioritise social housing in the UK.”
