Sovereign Harbour is the largest composite marina development in the UK comprising a 330 acre site to the east of Eastbourne. The site is centred around a series of harbours accessed to the sea via twin 50m locks. The harbours provide berthing space for over 1000 leisure craft. Over 3000 homes are anticipated when the project is complete. Other facilities include a retail park with an Asda Superstore, multi-screen cinema and a variety of retail warehouse units. The Waterfront provides a range of waterside restaurants, shops and small office suits together with a Harvester family pub/restaurant.
Acclaro Advisory was commissioned to support the planning application of eight sites, comprising employment and commercial uses, hotel, public open space, a residential scheme and community facilities. Outline planning permission has been sought for the development, which has been submitted and is awaiting a decision.
