LOCATION: Surry Street, Shoreham-By-Sea, West Sussex


Located in the South Coast town of Shoreham, The Mannings is a development that will comprise of a total of 74 low-carbon homes in a new three to six-storey building ranging from one to three-bedroom dwellings. 60 homes will be for shared ownership and 14 will be available at affordable rent prices.

Real was appointed by Southern Housing Group to carry out the works in September 2021, with work expected to start on site in November 2021. The initial work taking place will consist of the demolition of the existing 1980s 4 storey residential block, which has deteriorated over time due to age and weather. A number of existing residents have been relocated and look forward to returning on completion. 

The redevelopment of The Mannings will include carbon-saving measures such as air-source heat pumps, PV panels and heat recovery ventilation. Air-source heat pumps work by extracting renewable energy from the environment to heat the home, therefor resulting in reduced bills for the homeowner and reduced carbon emissions.

Work is expected to complete on the project late 2023.
