Architect sought for Eastbourne leisure centre revamp

Eastbourne Borough Council is seeking an architect to overhaul its Devonshire Park entertainment and leisure complex

A conservation architect-led multi-disciplinary design team is sought to overhaul the high-profile seaside attraction.

The town centre complex includes the Grade II-listed Devonshire Park Theatre designed by Frank Matcham, the Floral Hall, Congress Theatre, Winter Garden and several tennis courts.
