THIS is how the former Law Courts in Eastbourne’s Old Orchard Road will look.

Eastbourne Borough Council is inviting comments on a proposed new housing scheme on the site.

The proposals are for a mixture of 9 one bedroom and 26 two bedroom apartments and would include a number of wheelchair accessible flats.

They would provide much-needed council homes for local people on the housing waiting list.

The site will include a communal garden and growing space, and will use renewable energy technology.

The council says: “Your comments will help inform more detailed proposals when we submit a planning application

Please visit for more information and to send in your comments by Wednesday 9 June 2021.”
