Former Hindslands Playing Fields Eastbourne Road

Polegate , East Sussex

Site Description

Parcel A is approx. 1.788 ha (4.42 acres) was a former playing field, is roughly rectangular in shape and is currently heavily overgrown with brambles, scrub and self seeded saplings.

The Western boundary has a substantial frontage to the Eastbourne Road (A2270) with a mature tree belt, which we understand is subject to a Tree Preservation Order.

Possible access to the site may be obtained through Courtland Road (subject to planning), which is a pleasant residential cul-de-sac. Ground levels are generally consistent with Courtlands Road and gently sloping towards the South.

Parcel B is approx. 1.15 ha (2.85 acres) is rectangular in shape, generally flat and overgrown with brambles, scrub, self seeded saplings and bounded by mature trees. It appears there is a TPO on some/all of trees under (TPO [Polegate] no.431985) The site is landlocked for vehicular access but may be viewed via a footpath off Spurway Park.


The sites are situated on the Southern outskirts of Polegate, a small town of approx. 13,000 residents with a High Street providing various shops for everyday needs, public houses, with churches and Primary School nearby. The stunning South Downs National Park adjoins the town of Polegate which has excellent road accessibility via the A2270 Eastbourne Road. This gives access to the A27 trunk road and the A22 approx. 2 miles distant. London  is located approx. 60 miles to the North, while the popular costal town of Eastbourne is circa 5 miles to the South and the ancient market town of Hailsham is some 4 miles to the North.

The  local railway station is a short walking distance, providing access via Eastbourne to the coastal towns, Lewes, Ashford and London Victoria.

There are also excellent bus services passing along the Eastbourne Road offering excellent connectivity to Eastbourne, Hailsham, East Grinstead, Heathfield and Tunbridge Wells.
