The Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership has formally responded to the planning application for Brunswick Group’s Marina development with enthusiastic support.
The response endorses proposals as a big step forward to linking the Marina to the city centre and contributing to the city’s overall destination offer. The creation of nearly 2 hectares of building space on a platform over the beach is an ingenious idea in a city that has a dire shortage of land. Also the provision of 40% affordable housing was particularly praised. The Local Plan Inspector made it clear that the Council’s preferred policy of 40% was not acceptable and consequently Brunswick Group is voluntarily offering this figure as a contribution to the shortage from which the city suffers.
The Wilkinson Eyre designed 40-storey tower will bookend the limits of the seafront together with the proposed King Alfred Development by Frank Gehry.
