KSS BRIGHTON PIER BACKING
Brighton and Hove City Council's planners have recommended that KSS be given the green light for its controversial West Pier scheme (top). They were expected to support the scheme at a meeting held yesterday. But a number of hurdles still have to be cleared before construction can begin, including a potential judicial review.
Lomax Cassidy Edwards'Nick Lomax - the architect behind an alternative scheme (above) - said opponents are likely to attempt to force further legal action. He added that developer St Mowden has not started to negotiate the Section 106 agreement for its scheme, a process he expects to take 'quite some time', and has yet to submit a listed building consent application.
