Safford Park, Newhaven

This design and build opportunity is situated on the site of the former Parker Pen factory in the thriving harbour town of Newhaven, East Sussex.

The scheme has been designed to have a contemporary feel and a good portion of open space, which will be enhanced by ecological features and small play areas

The site consists of 145 new homes in total - 10 x one and two bed homes for Affordable Rent; 59 x properties, ranging from one to four beds, for Rent to Buy and 76 x two, three and four bed homes for shared ownership sale.


Surrounded by the South Downs, Newhaven is only 9 miles from Brighton, which is 20 minutes via the coast road and is 30 minutes by train. There are also good links to London and a ferry port which provides regular crossings to France.

The development is located adjacent to Eastside Park with the Ouse Estuary Nature Reserve to the left and the River Ouse to the right, and is within easy walking distance of Newhaven train station, the town centre and a number of local amenities.
