Plans agreed for Eastbourne's Arndale Centre
tp bennett’s scheme creates an inviting gateway to the town, connecting the main train station on Terminus Road to the existing Arndale Centre . The new extension will have a clearly defined contemporary façade that is attractive to the modern high street retailer and a covered pedestrian walkway behind the shops linking the new with the existing whilst, generating activity on both sides. Twenty-two new retail shops totalling over 150,000 sq ft will be constructed with over 370 new car park spaces. The existing mall will also have refurbished toilets as well as enhanced entrances to provide continuity between the two buildings.
Councillors were in unanimous agreement and praised tp bennett for listening to local people while finalising the plans. Around 5,000 people attended a host of consultations in the town and the planning committee delighted in how the people of Eastbourne had rallied around the plans.
