Three of the six new modular homes in Ashington Gardens in Peacehaven were craned into position this week. 

The high quality homes are being built off-site by a specialist modular building company, Boutique Modern.

Councillor Ron Maskell, Cabinet member for Housing, said: “It was really exciting to see the homes leave the factory on the back of a lorry in the morning and be in position in Peacehaven the same day.

“I’m not aware of another council in the south east that is as advanced as we are in the use of modular technology, and I’ve no doubt many of them will be looking at what we’re doing with great interest.”

Subject to planning, the council will move forward with 13 new modular homes in Newhaven later this year.
