Explore Living Marina planning applicaton

A planning application for major development at Brighton Marina for the Inner Harbour site was submitted by X-Leisure and Explore Living last month an respondents have until 21st December to comment.

The application is expected to go to the Planning Applications Sub-Committee for determination in Spring 2008.

It proposes a mixed-use development comprising a total of 1294 new residential units and a range of community, retail and commercial uses. Six main sites are proposed for redevelopment:–

  • the Asda superstore;
  • the Asda petrol station;
  • the estates office;
  • the McDonalds restaurant;
  • the Sea Wall alongside the western breakwater and western edge of the multi-storey car park, and
  • the eastern end of the multi-storey car park.

It is proposed that the existing ASDA supermarket will be demolished and redeveloped to create an enlarged store alongside other retail uses, with residential units and car parking above.

The existing petrol station would be demolished and replaced with a part retail and part residential block. The estates office would be demolished and replaced with a residential block. The McDonalds restaurant will be replaced within a new block with residential storeys above.

The western and eastern parts of the existing multi-storey car park will be demolished to accommodate a new petrol station and a residential block. The development proposal also encompasses the Octagon building where a change of use is anticipated for two existing retail units to be converted into a medical centre.

The new buildings proposed throughout the site will range from 1 to 28 storeys in height, containing a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom residential units with 40% of the total to be affordable housing.

The development also seeks permission to make alterations to the transport network, including a new transport interchange and changes to the existing vehicular access and giving higher priority to pedestrians and cyclists. A new pedestrian and cycle access is proposed into the Marina via a bridge link off the existing access on the cliffs onto the roof of a new building.

A new ‘squareabout’ is proposed in place of the existing roundabout. A total of 1484 car parking spaces and 1653 cycle parking spaces are proposed to serve the development.

A new community hall is proposed. Public realm improvements are proposed to enhance the environment within the Marina and new outdoor recreation and amenity spaces are proposed. The development incorporates sustainable features including a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system.

The Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership will be responding to the application. Click below for full details of the planning application.
