Bexhill Creative Workspace
- Capital Investment - East Sussex, Less than £2m, LGF3
Expected completion date
The project will deliver low cost creative workspace through the redevelopment of a former food production facility located on the Beeching Road industrial estate in Bexhill. The site was used by Premier Foods until 2004 when it closed with the loss of 250 local jobs.
The building has remained largely unused since and currently sits empty with little prospect of being let. The project will use the footprint and shell of the existing building, focussing redevelopment on the interior, roof and access points. This will ultimately lead to the creation of six light industrial units specifically for the purpose of attracting new creative industries in to the town.
