Welcome to the SHRA website
Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne, East Sussex, is a large, prestigious, marina-side development of houses and apartments arranged around an outer tidal harbour, four inner habours and alongside waterways and the shingle beach.
Sovereign Harbour is also a busy, commercial marina and a working port for the Eastbourne Fishermen There is an RNLI lifeboat station, a yacht club and many restaurants, cafes and bars It is a great place to live, and a great place to visit!
Digging out the harbour from a huge area of vegetated shingle known as The Crumbles began in 1991. House building commenced in 1997 and continued for ten years. More recently, a new medical centre has been built and the local junior school enlarged. More housing is under construction , and Pacific House, the first building of the Innovation Park , has opened. In late 2017, work started on a long-awaited community centre.
