A £140 million scheme to create a so-called 'Docklands of the South' in East Sussex has been submitted by the Morgan Carn Partnership.
The Newhaven development will create more than 500 flats on the marina plot and includes proposals to convert two listed buildings into an entertainment complex.
Drawn up for Oakdene Homes, the project was handed to Lewes District Council late last week and will be split into four phases.
Part of the scheme will see the River Ouse dredged to allow for more pontoons, in turn allowing for a wider mix of boating berths.
In addition to the housing and leisure there will also be 476 m 2
of new marina facilities. by Richard Waite
