For many years, residents at Sovereign Harbour have begrudgingly paid their annual harbour charges.

Whilst the money helps towards the upkeep of flood defenses in the area, many are angry that Eastbourne seems to be the only place to implement such fees, with other towns, like Newhaven, Rye and Shoreham, not having to fork out to keep the sea at bay.

Now, the Sovereign Harbour Residents' Association wants to mount a legal challenge against the charges and wants everyone who lives there to chip in towards the costs.
