Sussex Cricket Ground gets consent to redevelop
Overturning an officer recommendation to refuse planning consent, Brighton & Hove planning committee granted Sussex County Cricket Club permission to push ahead with extensive redevelopment plans.
An almost unanimous decision by the committee (11 in favour 1 abstention) means that the club can now put in place a mixture of offices and flats and two new stands, which are needed to make the club financially viable.
The club will be required to make contributions to transport and public art and to address issues of privacy for existing residents close to the new development.
