Langney Shopping Centre 'family fun day'
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our 'family fun day' to celebrate the recent reopening of Langney Shopping Centre. We hope visitors enjoyed the entertainment which included a jazz band, stilt walker, face painting and charity tombola. We are pleased that so many people came to support this event. The closure of the centre affected many local people and this was our way saying thank you for staying loyal to the Centre.

Public exhibition on Langney Shopping Centre eastern extension proposals
Thank you to everybody who was able to visit our exhibition on our proposals to invest in Langney Shopping Centre by extending the eastern end of the centre.
The exhibition was held at St Barnabas United Church on Wednesday 15th May. Many residents and tenants attended the exhibition to view the proposals.
If you were unable to attend the exhibition, you can download the exhibition boards that were on display below. If you know of anybody who doesn't have access to the internet, please get them to contact us on 020 7871 3565.
Langney Shopping Centre eastern extension proposals granted planning permission
We are pleased to announce that last night Eastbourne Borough Council's Planning Committee resolved to grant consent for the extension of the eastern end of Langney Shopping Centre. We would like to thank everyone who attended the public exhibition in May to view the eastern end extension proposals.
Programme for repairs to Langney Shopping Centre roof agreed
We have been actively working with the local Building Control officer to agree what work is necessary to enable the lifting of the Dangerous Structures Notice and allow the Langney Shopping Centre to reopen to the public.
As a result we have reached agreement on a schedule of works to reinforce elements of the roof of the building as well as reinstating the collapsed section.
Contractors are to be appointed and are due to start work at the beginning of April with the work being completed as soon as possible. Subject to agreeing a plan for phasing the work, it may be possible to open individual shop units before the whole of the repair programme is completed. We will work with individual tenants to agree a plan for reopening.
Access to the building will only be permitted once Building Control officers are content that the building is entirely safe.
On Thursday 20th December, part of Langney Shopping Centre's roof collapsed, the cause of which is yet to be determined. Building contractors have now been given access to the Langney Shopping Centre to assist the investigations of structural engineers and begin clearing the site.
The process of clearing the debris is expected to take some 4 weeks and the site remains subject to a Dangerous Structures Notice. This means the building must remain closed until the investigation into the cause of the collapse is complete.
Our overwhelming concern is for our traders and the residential tenants who lived in the building. Removing the collapsed roof is a delicate operation and will be time consuming as it is necessary to ensure the health and safety of those working on the site. However, tenants are allowed supervised access to safe areas of the building.
We are working closely with structural engineers, Wealden District Council (working in association with Eastbourne Borough Council as part of the East Sussex Building Control Partnership) and Shopping Centre tenants to ensure that we can re-open as soon as it is safe to do so.
