Extra care housing scheme to get £6.2m funding

The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has announced that Saxon Weald and Eastbourne borough council have been successful in a bid for almost £6.2 million grant funding to develop an extra care scheme in Langney. Derry Court and the land adjacent to it, owned by East Sussex county council, will be developed together to achieve the purpose built scheme. The development is forecast to provide 62 high-quality self-contained apartments for older people who have an assessed care need and require support with daily living.
