The population of East Sussex is projected to increase by nearly 41,000 to 590,000 between 2016 and 2031, according to the county’s own dwelling-led population projections. The rise will be mainly among the over 60 age group. A new briefing on Demographic Projections is available on ESiF.

The average dwelling cost around £270,000 in the county in December 2017, and median prices were 9.55 times average earnings.
