Sussex care home site to become residential development

New plans submitted to Wealden District Council could now see a former Uckfield care home in East Sussex and its surrounds transformed into an all-new, eco-friendly housing development.

The site in question is known as Charlwood Manor, located close to Uckfield, just off Snatts Road. The plans put forward by developers propose for the existing building at the location to be adapted to become homes, as well as the construction of new-build properties, to make a total of 19 new residences.

A planning statement was included in the application that outlined the intentions of the developer. It said that the work would return the existing building to its “former glory” through some cosmetic adjustments, and added:

“The wider site is then viewed in comparison to how the plot could have historically been perceived, and to that end a series of buildings relating to the original house have been proposed.”

According to the plans, the other buildings would include a forge-cum-workshop, a gatehouse and several stables, along with staff quarters, a granary barn and a coach house.

Expert architects in Wirral, Uckfield and other parts of the UK are sometimes called upon to create building designs that fit with the look and feel of other properties nearby for a more cohesive and appealing aesthetic.

If approved by local council planners, the new homes will feature environmentally friendly designs, boasting LED lighting, underfloor heating systems powered by heat pumps and charging points for electric vehicles (EVs).
