information on Eastbourne, East Sussex and its Sovereign
Harbour. For newcomers seeking an
attractive, flat, disability/mobility-friendly scenic and strategic locale with
most relevant goods and services nearby, Sovereign Harbour, part of Eastbourne's
Sovereign Ward, is
one of the best relocation places in Britain. But it is also the most expensive
because of higher council taxes the methodology of which has not changed in 27
years, plus flood defence charges of the type levied nowhere else in the world.
They cover a much wider geographical area than just Sovereign Harbour but to
date only Sovereign Harbour flat owners are presently required to pay the annual
costs, objected to by many residents.

Only 1.6 hours from
central London by rail. Not a city,
instead a large coastal town, pebble (not fine sand) beach seaside resort and borough in the non-metropolitan county
of East Sussex on the south coast of England, 19 miles (31 km) east of
Brighton. Eastbourne is immediately to the east of Beachy Head, the highest
chalk sea cliff in Great Britain. It has a seafront consisting largely of
largely internally and internally modernized Victorian hotels, a distinctive
pier recently renovated by a community-minded private investor, a Napoleonic era
fort and military museum and three distinctive, historic but local-authority
neglected Martello towers constructed by the British Army when invasion seemed
possible by Napoleonic forces. Although Eastbourne is a relatively
new town, there is evidence of human occupation in the area from the Stone Age.
The town grew as a fashionable tourist resort largely thanks to prominent
landowner, William Cavendish, later to become the Duke of Devonshire. His
ancestors included one who founded Devonshire
Parish in the islands of Bermuda
(website by this author). That district has as its heraldic crest that of the
Cavendish concerned. Eastbourne was developed by Cavendish from 1859 from four
separate hamlets. He appointed architect Henry Currey to design a street plan
for the town after sending him to Europe to draw inspiration.

Buying or renting or leasing a
domestic property by newcomers. Probably
one of the best website places for newcomers to search for all properties for
sale is Right Move. See www.rightmove.co.uk
with its comprehensive but
easy-to-use website. It lists a huge number of Eastbourne properties for sale
(use the Eastbourne only section), rent or lease and also shows the estate
agents involved. Most of the latter make a point of using Right Move.
Also see local house and flat
prices at http://www.home.co.uk/guides/house_prices.htm?location=eastbourne.
Important points to note:
- For the property or
properties you will be seeing have the estate agents provided full marketing
and other relevant information on that property? The best estate agents
will give full essential basic information for each property. It should
include current council taxes, what they cover and which local authorities
are involved; name of managing agent and current annual charges for the
unit; is there a leaseholders association for that property and if so how to
contact it to become a member; present harbour estate or water charge cost
(see immediately below); water feature charge if applicable on top of other
water charges; which company provides the electricity for that property;
which company provides the water and waste water.
- Prospective owners or
long-leaseholders of most if not all the 3,700+ homes in Sovereign Harbour
need to know in advance that they, no one else in Eastbourne, are required
to pay annually, not just once, for the harbour charge flood defence scheme
that surrounds the harbour, Eastbourne and beyond. They are in effect
discriminated against, under an East Sussex County Council and Eastbourne
Borough Council-approved Deed and Grant of Covenant, as a condition of the
sales contract that obliges the purchaser of Sovereign Harbour flats or
units (but not the owners of the buildings or any others in the flood
defence area), to pay for this. Yet a failure of the flood defence scheme
anywhere along this length of coast could possibly affect over 10,000 homes,
far more than just in Sovereign Harbour and cause damage to homeowners
possibly amounting to billions of pounds. No other harbour and marina in the
UK or Europe or the world make only this local community pay for
flood defences that go far beyond just this local community and no other
local authorities in the world, only our East Sussex County Council and
Eastbourne Borough Council, permit and have never challenged it. The
cost of this scheme to owners, about £250 per unit per year, does not
include flood insurance indemnity. Sovereign Harbour residents alone pay the
cost but do not get any protection for that cost. The Sovereign
Harbour Residents Association (SHRA) have long challenged the validity of
this plan and have advised those so affected to pay it to avoid a potential
legal problem but to also protest it in writing when they pay it. In the pdf
file on the Notes of the Minutes of the 2016 AGM of the SHRA there is an
account of what has happened to date and by whom, including how the SHRA
paid a substantial sum to a barrister for a legal opinion that questioned
the validity of the charge but was met by a challenge by the adversaries
involved to take it to court. It also shows the valued efforts of Member of
Parliament until June 8, 2017 Caroline Ansell, who believed the SHRA was right to raise
this matter, to get some answers, duly requested but not yet received from
the Environmental Agency she visited. It has now been suggested to the
SHRA by one of its new committee members that because there has been no
resolution of this long-standing matter despite the continued efforts of our
Member of Parliament that challenge should now be met, not in a UK court at
this time but instead initially by being referred to our MEPs (Members of
the European Parliament) while we still have them, in hope they in turn can
recommend it be referred to European agencies including if possible the
European Court of Human Rights on grounds including whether it is in fact a
valid charge applied elsewhere or unprecedented and an unfairly unique one
and discriminatory in that only Sovereign Harbour flat or terraced home
owners/long leaseholders/part freeholders have to pay it, not building
owners or any other residents of the same flood defence area affected.
- Estate agents selling
long-lease flats or terraced homes should also note in their particulars of
each non-freehold property that not just one but possibly four separate
organizations purchasers of those leasehold properties should know
about. They all have different roles. The first is the Sovereign
Harbour Residents Association, see http://www.shra.co.uk,
established in 2000 to give Harbour residents a strengthened and
co-ordinated voice in all discussions on the management and development of
Sovereign Harbour. It has worked hard in these and related areas and is the
leading voice in the community, the group representing the interests of not
just some but all harbour residents whether renting, leasing
or owning, and as the leading representative body, is consulted by local
authorities, police, etc It is non-political, socio-economic and
striving for community betterment at all levels. Its website shows its
unique community-wide value and benefits, for a very moderate not yearly but
lifetime cost, not only of the individual but the family. All full or
part-time residents of Sovereign Harbour should join. The second is the
leaseholders association of that building. All leaseholders of
a particular building should become members, usually for a small annual
cost, of the leaseholders association. Why? For three reasons. Members
thereof provide a common defence against matters such possible attempts by
managing agents or building owners to raise fees for new maintenance or
related works. When a leasehold association has 60 percent or more of its
occupants as members in good standing it has a legal right to challenge
arbitrary decisions. If that 60/% is not realized because not enough
occupants are current members, managing agents and/or the building's owners
(who usually appoint the managing agents) are legally entitled to proceed
without such blockage or interference. Only when a leasehold association
reaches 60% of its leasehold-holding owner-occupants does it have the power
to demand a change of managing agents. This has happened especially when
either management charges and additional maintenance expenses have been
deemed excessive - unrealistically high by the majority of members of the
leaseholders association, or when the managing agents and/or owners of
buildings have been continuously uncommunicative, or both. The third is
the managing agent of that building. Managing agents are
appointed to collect annual or semi-annual demands for management fees
payable by leaseholders and to maintain all lifts and common external
areas of the building including the exteriors of garages and parking spaces.
But they do not get involved in non-common areas. Leaseholders should
also know that if their buildings have lifts installed their management fees
will be higher than buildings without lifts, but leaseholders without their
own garages will pay the same management fee, not less, than leaseholders
with garages, even when those without garages have paid more for their
properties than those with garages. The fourth is the owner of that
building. When occupiers seek, on an individual (non-common) basis,
information about their flat, or make any complaint, or have or create any
damage or make any structural internal changes to their flats, such as
creating or changing rooms or walls or partitions or bathrooms or showers
they should probably copy managing agents into but should make sure their
submissions are addressed to the owners of the buildings concerned.
- If sea or harbour or
countryside views are important Council taxes may be higher.
- Council Taxes. Most
flats in the Sovereign Harbour area in buildings with garages seem to have
the same council taxes as flats without garages.
- Are shops, medical services
and buses or trains conveniently close?
- Renters will be
required to pay, in addition to their monthly rent, an upfront deposit
amounting to up to two months rent, get estate-agency approved contents
insurance and more. If from abroad, or with insufficient monthly income for
a monthly rent but with provable sufficient savings, there is a way out.
Renters can elect to pay in advance for the first six months of their rental
tenancy. Most rental agreements appear to be for an initial six month
- Some buildings with flats
may have just one electricity supplier, picked by the building's owner,
not owner of the flat. It may not always be possible to select or change
an electricity supplier.
- Is the property centrally
heated? Many flats in Sovereign Harbour are not, are instead
individually room-heated by radiators. If some have both gas and electricity
this should be stated.
- For a family with more than
one car is there assigned parking for more than one vehicle?
- If there is assigned
parking, is the parking covered or in the open on or underneath and
conveniently near to the property? Potential buyers or renters or lessees
need to look at the parking beforehand to see if the parking space is big
enough for their vehicle and if it can be accessed without difficulty.
- Are certain types of
vehicles such as vans or trucks not permitted to park on the
- Is there a garage or
outbuilding on the property in which to store, under cover, a cycle or
- If you or a member of your
family are disabled and have a Blue Badge, is there assigned disabled
parking there, wider than normal parking?
- If a member of your
household is severely disabled is there a separate bedroom and a bathroom
available that might qualify for a council tax one-band disability
- If a member of your
household is mobility-impaired and cannot climb stairs safely, is there a
lift in the flat's building?
- Are there sufficient
cupboard or closet or other storage spaces or built-in wardrobes in
bedrooms? This will be particularly important for some newcomers. Many
Sovereign Harbour flats have two bedrooms but few have adequate cupboard or
wardrobe space for two people, often barely enough in those two bedrooms for
one person. Some have no built-in cupboard spaces at all. Many flats appear
to have been constructed primarily for part-time or holiday, not full-time
- After agreeing in principle
to buy but before legally committing to long-lease or purchase the property
it is particularly recommended you use a local chartered surveyor to
give you (a) a written report on the condition of the property; (b) an
unbiased present valuation of the property; and (c) an indication of
any planning that might be in progress or applied for that might affect your
views. It will cost you £450 or more to have this survey report made but it
will be money well spent. If the chartered surveyor's valuation of that
property is noticeably less than the estate agent's and seller's price for
that property, you have the right to demand a lower price to match what the
surveyor suggests, or cancel your interest. It could be well worth it to you
to cancel as there is now somewhat of a glut in available flats.
- When you have decided to
buy (or sell) a Eastbourne or Sovereign Harbour property, it is particularly
suggested you use an Eastbourne-based solicitor. If you instead use one
from other parts of the UK where this area is largely unknown you might get
hit with certain charges, for example a chancel repair liability or search
or payment, that do not not apply here, and/or incur other delays in
completing the transaction. Many newcomers not from this area have had this
problem and should not pay for any such chancel charges. A local solicitor
will or should know immediately there is no chancel repair cost or charge or
liability or need for chancel liability insurance in the Sovereign Harbour
area which did not exist when chancel costs applied elsewhere.

Eastbourne Martello Towers 64 and 66
Martello Tower 64.
Photo cc Keith and Lois Forbes
Unique to South east coast of
England, with only two of them ever built abroad (at then-British Army posts in
Barbuda, Caribbean and Bermuda, North Atlantic). Martello Tower 64 is a historic
monument and includes both a Martello tower and a World War II gun emplacement
on top of it, situated on a shingle beach to the north east of Eastbourne, at Sovereign
Harbour North, mid-way between Langney Point and Pevensey Bay. The tower, which
is Listed Grade II, lies around 1km north east of its surviving neighbor, tower
no 66. There is no longer a Martello Tower 64, it was washed out to sea. Martello tower 64 retains many of its original components. It is
one (like 66) of the surviving examples of a series of
low-lying towers, designed to defend a specific stretch of coastline. The
addition of a gun emplacement during World War II represents the continued
significance of this defensive position well into the 20th century.
Martello towers were gun towers constructed to defend the vulnerable south
eastern coast of England against the threat of ship-borne invasion by Napoleonic
forces. They were built as a systematic chain of defence in two phases, between 1805-1810
along the coasts of East Sussex and Kent, and between 1808- 1812 along the
coasts of Essex and Suffolk. They are referred to as Martello Towers because
their design was based on a fortified tower at Martello Point in Corsica which had put up a prolonged
resistance to British forces in 1793. The towers take the form of compact,
free-standing circular buildings on three levels built of rendered brick. The
towers of the south coast were numbered 1-74 from east to west, while those of
the east coast were identified by a system of letters (A-Z, and then AA-CC) from
south to north. Although they exhibit a marked uniformity of design, minor
variations are discernible between the southern and eastern groups and amongst
individual towers, due mainly to the practice of entrusting their construction
to local sub-contractors. Most southern towers are elliptical in plan, whilst
the eastern group are oval or cam-shaped externally, with axes at the base
ranging between 14.4m by 13.5m and 16.9m by 17.7m. All are circular internally,
the battered (inwardly sloping) walls of varying thicknesses, but with the
thickest section invariably facing the seaward side. Most stand to a height of
around 10m. Many Martello towers are surrounded by dry moats originally
encircled by counterscarp banks, and/or have cunettes (narrower water defences)
situated at the foot of the tower wall. The ground floor was used for storage,
with accommodation for the garrison provided on the first floor, and the main
gun platform on the roof. The southern towers carried a single 24 pounder
cannon, whilst the eastern line carried three guns (usually a 24 pounder cannon
and two shorter guns or howitzers). Three large, circular ten- gun towers known
as redoubts were also constructed at particularly vulnerable points, at
Dymchurch, Eastbourne and Harwich. All three survive. As the expected Napoleonic
invasion attempt did not materialize, the defensive strength of the Martello
tower system was never tested, and the tower design was soon rendered obsolete
by new developments in heavy artillery. Many were abandoned and fell into decay
or were demolished during the 19th century, although some continued in use into
the 20th century as signaling or coastguard stations and a few saw use as look
out points or gun emplacements during the two World Wars. Of the original 74
towers on the south coast, 26 now survive, and of the 29 on the east coast, 17
now survive. Those which survive well and display a diversity of original
components are considered to merit protection.
