A step closer to being built

Brighton Marina redevelopment gets a step closer?

The redevelopment of the marina’s outer harbour has been recommended for approval by the officers in the planning department that advise the planning committee. This moves it a step closer but it still isn’t a ‘done deal’ until it goes before the planning committee on November 11th.

The £265m scheme, which includes a controversial 40-storey tower with 998 new homes, was submitted for planning in January of this year but withdrawn and resubmitted a few months later with one or two modifications.

Architect’s Wilkinson Eyre have designed part of the scheme which has paid particular attention to transport linking the site to the rest of the city. The developers would contribute £1.2m towards sustainable transport particularly the rapid transit system and a car club.

Unlike the proposals for the King Alfred site buses will be able to go directly into the heart of the development to a transport interchange that will also accommodate taxis.

Opponents are citing a number of reasons why it shouldn’t be built including a legal challenge based on whether a section of the Brighton Marina Act 1968, which appears to allow buildings to be taller than the nearby cliff top, was intended to allow skyscrapers. 

Opponetns to the scheme are claiming that transcripts of parliamentary debates at the time indicate that the spirit of this concession was only to allow the council to build features like lamp-posts and railings but the developer is confident that the wording will allow a 128 metre tower. Having taken legal advice, the city council's planning officers agree.
