The village of Ovingdean is set in an idyllic position between The National Park of the South Downs and The English Channel. Ovingdean is located just to the east of Brighton and lies within Brighton and Hove Borough Council. It has a population of approximately 1200 people.
The name Ovingdean comes from Old English meaning ‘The Valley of the People’. The village was absorbed into the city of Brighton & Hove in 1928.
Whilst there are no primary schools located within Ovingdean itself, there are a number of ‘good’ primary schools within 2 kilometres in the adjoining villages. Secondary education is provided at Longhill High School which is located immediately to the south of the site.
There are a few shops and services within Ovingdean which is all part of the location’s semi rural charm and adds to its peaceful character. However it is less than a mile from Brighton where one will find a full range of shops, services and employment.
Falmer Road runs in a southerly direction on the eastern edge of Ovingdean and connects into the A259 Marine Drive which provides excellent access into Brighton past the Brighton Village Marina.

It extends to approximately 3.72 hectares (9.2 acres). The site is gently sloping from east to west. To the east is Falmer Road, which runs north/south into Rottingdean. To the north of the site is Ovingdean Road, which will provide the vehicular access into the development. To the west is The Vale which is a private road and to the south are playing fields, which serve Longhill High School.
