PHASES has been successful in its bid to Round Two of the government’s Empty Homes Community Grants Programme. Funding of £590k has been secured from the Department of Communities and Local Government to purchase three properties in the Lewes, Brighton & Hove and Adur & Worthing Council areas. This second round of funding had a slant towards bringing empty commercial premises back into use as residential accommodation. The planned centrepiece project is conversion of a disused light-industrial building in Peacehaven to provide 21 bedspaces.
