In a report recommending approval of the plan, an Eastbourne planning spokesman said: “The development proposals utilize a currently under-used brownfield site in a highly sustainable location through partial demolition, including retaining part of the building’s facade, and redevelopment to create a… intensified mixed use concept consisting of commercial space and residential buildings on six floors.”

The spokesman added: “The proposal is in line with the development plan and is therefore recommended for approval subject to conditions and an S106 agreement to ensure a local collective agreement and improvements in public transport/environment.”

Unlike previous site proposals, the program received only one objection from one local resident. In addition, it is supported by several local groups including the City Chamber of Commerce and the Eastbourne Society.

Apart from two disabled parking spaces, there will be no resident parking spaces. However, residents have access to 80 bicycle parking spaces, a car club program and a community garden.
