Untold Living plans 139-home Eastbourne retirement scheme

Later living developer Untold Living has submitted plans for a 139-home integrated retirement community (IRC) in Eastbourne.

In November, backed by Matter Real Estate, Untold Living completed the acquisition of a 2.5-acre seafront site at Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne from Birch Limited.

Subject to planning consent to Eastbourne Borough Council, the IRC will comprise a range of one and two-bedroom apartments overlooking the English Channel.

Designed by architects Gaunt Francis, the scheme will provide high-quality, independent later living accommodation. Homes will be available across a range of different mid-market tenures, including to buy, for rent, and purchase via shared ownership. 

Untold Living CEO Russell Jewell said: “The urgent need for more purpose-built later living accommodation in the UK cannot be overstated, particularly in East Sussex, where the population of over-70s is growing more quickly than the national average.

“Many thousands of older people are living in accommodation that is wholly unsuitable to their needs, which poses a serious risk to their mental and physical wellbeing.

“Our Eastbourne scheme will not only offer round-the-clock care and support to residents when needed but also relieve pressure on local health and social services by lowering the frequency of residents’ hospital and GP visits.

“We are grateful to the people of Eastbourne for all of the valuable feedback we have received so far and look forward to announcing further details in due course.”
