23 Feb - Beach Work Update - We have completed the Shingle Bypass works from Eastbourne to the North Beach. Owing to limited access at North Beach we have a shingle bank near to the Martello Tower. This will be moved over the next couple of weeks to the revetment so we will continue to have machinery working in this area.
Likewise we have machinery working at Beachlands moving material towards the Harbour. These dumpers will travel in convoy up towards to harbour to minimise noise and dust.
With three more months of high spring tides and potential bad weather still to consider, we have bull dozers also working in various areas along the beach. We continue to monitor the weather. So far so good, no named storms this month.

The Sovereign Harbour Residents Association (SHRA) aims to give Sovereign Harbour residents a strengthened and co-ordinated voice in discussions on the management and development of the Harbour. The work of the Association is funded by annual membership subscriptions and by annual donations from our sponsors.
Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne, East Sussex, is a large, prestigious, marina-side development of houses and apartments arranged around an outer tidal harbour, four inner harbours and alongside waterways and the shingle beach.
It is also a busy commercial marina and a working port for the Eastbourne Fishermen. There is a RNLI lifeboat station and a popular yacht club. At The Waterfront there are restaurants, cafes and bars with regular events and entertainments with ample, free parking. It is a great place to live, and a great place to visit!
Begining in 1991, the Harbour was dug out from an area of vegetated shingle known as The Crumbles. House building commenced in 1997 and continued for ten years. In more recent years a new medical centre has been built and the local junior school was enlarged. Further housing is under construction and Pacific House, the first building of an Innovation Park, has opened. A long-awaited community centre was in use by December 2019.
Membership is open to all households in owned or rented residential property located within the Sovereign Harbour estate, and owners of such residential property. Click here to join SHRA... Membership brings discounts from local businesses.
Our website is frequently updated with reports on the work of the Association and local news and issues. We also publish information on harbour clubs and activities, future development, local transport, local trades, and offer a page of useful links. We welcome your letters, event announcements and photos.
