Wilkinson Eyre hopes for Brighton Marina win

  • Comment
Wilkinson Eyre's masterplan for Brighton Marina has won the backing of local authority planning officers ahead of a crucial decision about its future this week.

The practice's mixed-use plans to substantially redevelop a large chunk of the city's waterfront will go before the Brighton & Hove council's planning committee this Friday (11 November).

An inspector is 'minded to approve' the project, subject to the fulfilment of a number of planning gain obligations.

These include: a £1.2 million commitment towards enhancing 'sustainable transport' in the region; £875,000 for local outdoor sports and recreation improvements and £330,000 to enhance educational facilities in the city.

The practice's proposals include: 988 flats, 40 per cent of which will be affordable units; 504m 2of harbour control and marina offices; a community centre and visitor viewing gallery and 176 car parking spaces along with a free lifeboat station.

The planning inspector's report concludes that Wilkinson Eyre's proposals represent an 'innovative and high-quality design solution' with distinguished landmark buildings that would help regenerate the marina.
