Summary of Project
Maritime House is located on the Hove seafront at Shoreham Port. The area is home to many businesses, supporting employment for both local residents and commuters. The purchase of Maritime House will secure the building for continued business use rather than the alternative of converting into housing which is not suited to this particular area of the seafront.
The Local Growth Fund has been used alongside some match funding to purchase the building.
