Newhaven Development LLP has applied for planning permission to build phase one of the port access road, footpath/cycleway and associated works.
The port access road was part of the Newhaven Eastside regeneration scheme, which also includes building an Asda supermarket, 190 homes and office space.
The houses will be built by Barratt Homes on land near Drove Road, forming a major new development in the town.
Lewes District Council’s planning committee will consider the scheme and have the final say.
