A ribbon-cutting ceremony has been held to mark the completion of 40 new homes at Cripps Avenue in Peacehaven. The site has been completed by a partnership between leading social housing provider Stonewater and Newhaven company Boutique Modern, the UK’s first modular construction company to gain B Corp certification, with support from Lewes District Council.

It provides 40 energy-efficient modular homes for affordable rent, constructed just three miles from the development site using modern methods of construction (MMC).

Members of the design and construction team joined Stonewater to commemorate the completion of the site, which has brought significant benefits to the local economy, including more than £3.5m being spent with local businesses, suppliers and subcontractors within the district and the creation of 14 new full-time construction roles.

The new homes; nine one and two-bedroom flats and 31 two and three-bedroom houses, will also benefit their customers with each home being built with energy-efficiency and lower fuel bills in mind.

The Cripps Avenue homes have been built on the site of a former plant hire business and derelict property in Peacehaven. It now boasts not only modern, attractive and high-quality homes, but a new feature in the form of a sculpture commissioned by Stonewater. The sculpture, created by Newhaven artist Rich Dean, is named “Ascension of the Fallen” and contains 1,000 stainless steel poppies. It was created in memory of those involved in the First World War, at which time Peacehaven had strong connections with the armed forces.
