Occupation imminent?

Change of Use for Exion 27 indicates planning flexibility?

The 28,000 sq ft Exion 27 building on the A27 bypass at Hollingbury has stood empty since it was built three years ago. Brighton & Hove Council’s flexible attitude to its use class might make it an attractive proposition for a tenant.

Following guidance in the Local Plan the building was constructed to accommodate light manufacturing use on the ground floor with ancillary office accommodation on the upper floors but their use must be related to the manufacturing at ground floor level.

The managing agents are about to submit a planning application requesting a change of use to office accommodation which for the ground floor. Last year the Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership (BHEP) held one of its regular meetings in the building to highlight the problems of inflexibility in the planning system. It is hoped that the application for change of use will be viewed sympathetically by the Local Authority so that this prestigious landmark development can be occupied after such a considerable period of vacancy. The BHEP will be supporting this application.
