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. 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 External link logo has been built and the local junior school External link logo enlarged. More housing is under construction External link logo, and Pacific House, the first building of the Innovation Park External link logo, has opened. In late 2017, work started on a long-awaited community centre.

Sovereign Harbour Residents Association (SHRA) gives Sovereign Harbour residents a strengthened and co-ordinated voice in discussions on the management and development of the Harbour.
