Brighton & Hove City Council has given the green light for 21 affordable homes to be built in Roedale Road in Hollingdean. There are some conditions imposed on the developer to ensure community benefits.
Brighton & Hove City Council’s planning committee gave the scheme the go-ahead, with the proviso that developers Southern Housing Group first enter into a legal agreement with the council to set up a car club, put £40,684 towards outdoor recreation space and £66,686 towards secondary education in the area.
The Roedale Road site was previously used for industrial purposes. A company called Toomey’s built air conditioning units. The site has now been empty for over a year. The new plan for the area comprises of a terrace of seven two storey houses and a four storey block containing 14 flats.
Chair of the planning committee Les Hamilton said, “It’s good to see an entire development of much needed affordable housing. One of the conditions of planning approval was that these homes remain as affordable housing in the long term.”
Work is likely to begin in the New Year.
