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.

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.
