Land Fronting Reef Way, Hailsham



The site, overlooking open space to the front is situated approx. 0.3 mile from the Town centre.

Hailsham provides a host of facilities, with the main shopping area being developed along the High Street and George Street. There are various local and national shops, restaurants, several supermarkets, pubs and places of worship.

The area is well served by several primary schools, a secondary school, excellent leisure and sporting facilities including football, cricket, swimming pool, gym, fishing, horse riding and excellent country walks, especially along the South Downs.

There are excellent road connections via the A22/A27 which provide access to the popular coastal resort of Eastbourne (7 Miles), Lewes (11 miles) the County Town of East Sussex, and access to the M25 onwards to London.

Polegate railway station is just over 3 miles distant, with rail services operating to Eastbourne, Hastings, Brighton, Lewes, London, Tunbridge Wells, and Gatwick Airport.


The site extends to approx. 0.26 h/a (0.65 acre) with a full frontage to Reef way and is roughly rectangular in shape, and currently grass and some scrubland.

It slopes steeply by approx.7.5m from north to south, is adjoining existing residential development to the west and school to the east.


Detailed planning consent was granted by Wealden District council under planning ref. WD/2018/1271/F for the erection of six 2/3 storey dwellings, subject to various conditions.

Most of those conditions are standard, however, condition 15 may concern some potential buyers.

The other conditions that may delay an exchange is certainly the requirement of a phase 2 soil investigation and archaeological works. Which may have cost implications.

Please advise if any further reports other than those on the planning portal have subsequently be carried out.
