Regeneration to go ahead at Falmer campus
Outline planning permission has been granted for the demolition of several buildings on Brighton University's Falmer campus and the construction of new academic accommodation, a gym, a sports pavilion, netball and tennis courts and an all-weather sports pitch.
The planning committee gave the university permission on 14 January to knock down six teaching blocks dating from the 1960s, the gymnasium and 1-3 Turnpike Piece.
They will replace these outdated buildings with new ones as part of the ongoing regeneration of the campus. A new library and medical centre have already been built as part of this scheme.
Bob Carden, chair of the planning committee, said, "The Falmer campus is on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but the proposals show the new buildings won't have a negative effect on the environment. The sports pavilion is the only actual 'new' building, as the others are all replacements for current outdated ones."
