Rother council confirms purchase of Sainsbury’s site

Rother District Council has said that its purchase of a key site in Bexhill will benefit the district’s long-term future through valuable rental income.

The district council recently completed the purchase of a site in Buckhurst Place, which has been occupied by Sainsbury’s since it was built in the mid-1970s.

The acquisition was part of a Property Investment Strategy aimed at supporting the council’s objectives to promote economic growth within Rother, as well as contributing to its finances.
