Paramount Attractions is to lodge a planning application for a 60m spokeless observations wheel on the seafront opposite the Metropole Hotel. It will be capable of carrying 200 people in 32 glass pods.
Already dubbed the "Brighton O", the £6m wheel will generate 30 full time jobs and the developers will initially apply for a two-year temporary consent. Unlike other observation wheels, which are increasingly common in tourist destinations, the pods on the Brighton O move around the circular steel frame on guide rails.
