Karis, the company backing Gehry's development, has hit out at claims that it is hoping to back out of the development after it was rumoured that it had been approached by another investor wishing to buy the site to stop the Gehry project.
'They are the ones who are stopping the development of Brighton and see it move with the times.'
Arghiros admitted that his company has had to re-advertise further information about the development, this time on microclimate issues surrounding the Gehry scheme such as rights to light and wind.
Arghiros said: 'We have re-advertised further information following a request from the planner. We are keeping to the rules and regulations laid out in front of us in order to have a tight planning application ready for when we submit near the end of March.'
