The Water Feature, Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne

The water feature on the Columbus Point development at Sovereign Harbour South, Eastbourne, is one of the largest in Europe. The 310 metres long, anchor-shaped, concrete structure comprising channels, cascades and fountains and crossed by pedestrian bridges, was officially opened in December 2003.

Owners of 369 residential properties (houses and apartments) in the area are covenanted in their deeds to pay for the management, running and maintenance of the water feature.


The water feature is owned, managed and maintained by Columbus Point (Management Company) Limited (CPMCL), a company set up for the purpose by the developer. In 2015 the company was transferred from the developer to the collective control of the local covenanted property owners; at the same time the freehold of the feature was transferred to CPMCL.

The water in the feature is dosed with chemicals to restrict algae growth. The chemicals could cause a skin rash and stomach problems, so entering the water is very ill-advised and prohibited. Keep children out of the water.
