LGF project delivered

Project completion date


Spring 2017

Site infrastructure to facilitate new employment floorspace. The project involves the provision of enabling infrastructure to unlock the development of Swallow Business Park on a 3.4 hectare greenfield site. The site lies in the A22/A27 Eastbourne/South Wealden Growth Corridor and is an important employment location in the Growth Corridor. The scheme is being promoted by East Sussex County Council (ESCC) and will be delivered by the site owner and developer, Westcott Leach Ltd. The site lies to the north of the A22, immediately west of the existing Hackhurst Industrial Estate, approximately 3 miles from Hailsham.

Scheme description

The proposed works involve the provision of general infrastructure, including the completion of the site access road from the A22 and utilities services and associated works supply to open up the site for new employment floorspace. The scheme includes six blocks with associated access roads, parking and landscaping. The development extends the existing Hackhurst Lane Industrial Estate, creating a new shared access onto the A22 and improvements to utility services. The new access to the A22 will remove commercial traffic from the existing sub-standard Hackhurst Lane and improve operating conditions for the existing industrial estate as well as opening up new development on Swallow Business Park.
