An Old Town church could be demolished.

St Elisabeth’s church in Victoria Drive has been proposed to be demolished and the land sold.

The Church Commissioners said in a statement it had, “prepared a draft scheme providing for the demolition of the closed church building of Eastbourne St Elisabeth and disposal of the site.”

A copy of the draft scheme is available at St Elisabeth’s Church Centre.

A drop-in session will take place on Monday (December 4) between 3pm and 7pm where members of the Commissioners’ and Dionesan staff will be available to answer questions about the proposals.

Anyone who would like their opinion on the matter known can email closedchurches.reps@churchofengland.org or write to Representations, Closed Churches Division, Church Commissioners, Church House, Great Smith Street, London SW1P 3AZ.

Submissions must be received before Monday, January 8.
