Plans to build 10 new homes in Langney Shopping Centre car park have been put forward to Eastbourne council.

The two-storey houses, which the developers has said are suitable for first time buyers, could be built on the current 42 space car park used by delivery drivers.

In a design and access statement submitted by the developer, Goldeneye Developments Limited, a spokesperson said, “Langney has been assessed as one of the most sustainable neighbourhoods in the town, principally as a result of its excellent access to services and facilities.”

The developers said the car park, at the rear of the centre, was under-utilised and there would be no loss of retail use.

This comes after recent proposals to build 10 family homes on a popular ex-car wash on the other side of the shopping centre were approved.
