What are we proposing?
The Downland, within the boundaries of Eastbourne, consists of two parts. The Open Downland (which is freely accessible to members of the public) and the Downland working farms (which are not).
Our proposal is to offer for sale the freeholds of the Downland working farms. The Council would still be retaining over 1000 acres of Open Downland, including Beachy Head. You can download the related Downland Working Farms Proposal document below for full details regarding this matter.
