Brighton & Hove Council’s P&R Committee voted by 9 votes to 6 to approve landlord’s consent for the revised King Alfred development plans thus securing the possibility to proceed to a full planning application.
The deal was struck with the compromise that the Council is committed to work with the developer (Karis/ING) to provide a meaningful proportion to the housing in another location in order to reduce the impact of the development on its sea front location.
However, the Conservative Group on P&R dismissed the amendment as “meaningless” because it is not legally binding and they are reported to be considering asking the government to call in the P&R committee decision.
An open letter was sent to the Argus on the day before the P&R committee outlining the broad view of key business representatives in the city. Click on download below for a copy of the letter.
