Northeye Update – Statement from the Leader of Rother District Council, Councillor Doug Oliver (19.01.2024) 

It has been some time since my last update regarding the Home Office’s plans to use the Northeye site in Bexhill as asylum accommodation.

Rother District Council understands that the Home Office is still exploring the use of the site for detention purposes and assessments continue to be undertaken to consider the feasibility. No decision has been made regarding the future use of the site.  

We are continuing to work with partners though regular multi-agency forums and remain committed to ensure that any use of the Northeye site is lawful and acceptable and that the views of the local community are heard by all bodies responsible for making decisions
