The scheme at Orchard Close – which benefitted from a £297,000 Rother District Council grant – was praised by Councillor Ruairi McCourt, lead member for Housing. He said:

“I would like to thank all the partners involved for their work on this fantastic project.

“We are really keen to see more social and affordable housing across the district which will help tackle homelessness and insecure housing.

“Decent, secure housing – like these wonderful homes at Icklesham – not only boosts the health and wellbeing of their residents, but they also help to create sustainable communities for local people well into the future.”
